Will Be One Of Open- 
ing Events 

The. 1941 .session of the State 
Legislature will get under way in j 
St. Paul next Tuesday with pros- 
pects for an interesting term. The 
members of the senate arid house 
of representatives from- this district

J. O. Melby and Walter E. Day : 
all seasoned men from former 

It is expected that Gov. Stassen 
will be inaugurated for his second 
term' on "Wednesday. 
" Because of the ouster of John G. 
Rockwell ^pd Eugene Carstater in 
the department of education and 
the scandal at Anoka in regard to 
the tornado relief, there is a pos- 
sibility that much smoke will be 
raised bv some- legislators. 

While "the Farmer-Laborites are 
•in the minority, several stalwarts 
are expected' to join with them on 
several measures when "fur -will be 
flying." That rural bloc that got

legislative circles last session may 
"be something to consider again this

Oliver. Graceville physician, senate 
second termer .and a. prominent 
member of- the conservative major-

. Ordinarily, the senate issues are 
handled pretty well on party or po- 
litical factional lines with the con- 
servative majority usually running 
the show and the liberal minority 
■sniping away and getting what it' 
can of its small share. . 

But occasionally the country 
members find themselves disagree- 
in --r -with the citv members on such 
issues as the state .gasoline tax.

fense Problem Head New Issues 

Such domestic questions as Presi- 
dent Roosevelt's monetary .powers,

provides that no soil conservation 
benefits may be paid after Jan, 1, 
1942, except on fanning operations 
prior to that time. If congress 
wants to continue the program, it 
will have to act next year. 

The first automatic expiration 
date coming before the new i con- 
gress will be the- president's pow- 
er to reorganize the executive 
branch of the government. No re- 
organization orders can be effec- 
tive under the law unless trans- 
mitted to congress before Jan. 21,

Flax Production Will Be Discussed 

- By State Specialist; -Session To 

Start At 1 One O'Cloek 

Farmers in -the vicinity- who ar; 
interested' in crop improvement 
work are invited to. .attend, the 
meeting called for 1:00 p. m. Tues- 
day afternoon, Jan. -7, at the Court 
House afe Thief River Falls. W. w'. 
Brookins, extension crcps specialist 
from University Farmi will attend 
this meeting- to .-discuss crop prob- 
lems,, especially those-relat-ed'to'flax- 
production in this county. - 

There is, without doubt, an urg- 
ent need en many Pennington. coun -. 
ty farms for more definite under- 
standing as to the value of usin? 
clean seed of recommended varie- 
ties, the county agent's office hai 
pointed out. Likewise, there is ne' 
for more extensive information a- 
to the best farming practices 
carry -on in raising a crop. The ex- 
tent to which crop hazards, 
as weeds and plant -diseases can~b2 
reduced, is very, closely connected 
with farming practices that are 
within control of the farmer. 

If there is sufficient interest in 
developing some definite crop im- 
provement work within the county. ! 
good cooperation will be realized 
I from the Extension Division. Dem- 
I onstratlons could with little diffi- 
culty^ be. set up on various farms 
throughout the county, showing the 
value of using clean seed of adopt- 
ed varieties. A plan for making ex- 
tensive use of good seed could be 
worked out. Special emphasis In 
Pennington county should be plac- 
ed on flax because it is the most 
important cash crop grown in the 

Farmer-Lab aites or Penning- 
ton county Saturday afternoon at 
a session at the Courthouse. 

Mrs. Laura Naplin of this city 
was elected convention chairman 
after Ejnar Jensen, the county 
committee chairman, opened the 
session. J. W. Erlandson of May- 
field Township was elected conven- 
tion secretary. 

The delegates who will represent 
the party at both district and state 
.conventions, are: H. O. Berve and. 
J. H. Ulvan, who will represent ti*& 
city, and Ejnar Jensen, Gordon 
Olson and Palmer Wold from the 
rural orecincts. The alternates are* 
Mrs. Naplin and O. F. Halldin fronn 
the city and Elvin Sanders, J. W. 
■Erlandson and A. W. OsM from. 
the- rural precincts. 

Among .the resolutions adopted 
was one in" opposition to fusing- with, 
the Democratic party ' where the 
Fanner-Labor party will lose its 
Identity. The meeting was generally 
favorable to going into cooperation 
with the Democrats but not- on a. 
basis where the Farmer-Labor par- 
ty name and alignment would be 
dispensed with altogether. . Some 
criticism was directed at several of 
the officers of- the Folk county 
committee who abandoned the par- 
ty altogether. -- --.- - --

Roosevelt's Talk On Aid To 

Britain Is Favorably Received 

Patronize our advertisers 

President Roosevelt gave his 15th 
fireside broadcast Sunday evening 
to what is. believed to have been 
the most widely llstened-to address 
In the nation's history. The topic 
was aid to Britain just short of 
war and the reaction from the 
country since indicates that the 
tone of the talk was in general 

Speaking with great seriousness 
In a much awaited radio broadcast 
that went 'round the world, the 
chief executive linked the nation's 
future security with Britain's abil- 
ity to achieve victory. 

The British people battling the 
axis, he said, .were fighting "an 
unholy alliance of power and pelf 
(which seeks) to dominate and en- 
slave the human race. 

"Our own future security is great- 
ly dependent on the outcome of 
that fight. Our ability "to 'keep out 

of war' is going to be affected by 
that outcome." 

Must Hike Output 

"For„us," he said, "this is an 
emergency as serious as war itself. 
We must apply ourselves to our 
task with the same resolution, the 
same sense of urgency, the same 
spirit of patriotism and sacrifice as 
we would show were we at war." 
' "All our present efforts are not 
'enough," he asserted. "We must 
have more ships, more guns, more 
planes— more of everything. Thoa 
can only be accomplished if we dis- 
card the notion of "business as us- 
aal." This job cannot be done by 
merely superimposing on the exist- 
ing Iroductlve facilities the added 
requirements for defense." 

Mr. Roosevelt coupled his call for 
virtual wartime munitions produc- 
tion with the pledge of multiplying

More than $44,003,000 has been 
put into quick circulation in Min- 
nesota through the WPA program 
during the past year, S. L. Stolte, 
WPA administrator, announced this 
week in reviewing the work of that 
federal agencv. 

. Federal funds totaled $31,469,995. 
Contributions toward project un- 
dertakings faf.- local public sponsors- 
amounted to S13.167.091. 

Projects of the division of oper- 
ations and the professional and 
service division gave work to an, - 
average of 39,921 needy men and? 
women in all counties of the state- 
during 1940. Employment ranged 
from a high of 49.161 Feb. 2?, to a 
law of 33,006 June 29. The high, 
point for the year was below that 
of 64,825 registered in 1939. The 
1940 low, however, came close to the 
record of 33,809 set during the pre- 
ceding 12 months. 

Pennington County 
The recreation program in ~Psn- 
hington county is cperatir:^ in' 
Thief River Falls for the purpose 
of promoting a full time year round 
nrogram consisting of physical ac- 
tivities, craft, puppetry, handicraft, 
and low organized. games. This -oro- 
gram is operating under the local 
recreation board with the coopera- 
tion of WPA recreation leaders. 

Thief River Falls has just recent- 
ly igone through a period of com- 
plete reorganization and we feel 
that with the fine backing and fa- 
cilities and the improved tyne of 
leadership that is being offered the 
program, they will go ahead by 
leaps, and bounds. 

Thief River Falls 
The interest of the people of 
Thief River Fs-ills is directed to the 
repairs to the Sanatorium, im- 
provements to the park, construc- 
tion of the skating" rink, extension 
of several blocks to the water and 
sewer systems, construction of a 
large amount of sidewalks- and im- 
provements at the fairgrounds. 
St. Hllalre 
In St. Hilaire the construction of 
the recreation building on the 
scohol grounds is of vital import- 
ance. - _

ate or summarize the year 1940 and express our 
idea as to what the year just started will have in 

^Before we proceed we cannot do otherwise than 
repeat what we have said so often and .that is the 
senselessness of mankind to build up the different 
countries or nations and then come along and lav

There are a growing number of big Industrialists 
and men of big money affairs In this country who 
are ^ginning to fear a British victory almost as 
much, If not even moreso, than a Hitler victory. At 
the war continues, they sense a social change going 
on in Britain pointing towards a new social ordet 
in which rule wul be taken from the tory class and 
lodged with the people. Rather than permit that to 
happen, they prefer a peace with Hitler and adjust 
themselves, to the kind of a world that he would 

Ex-Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy is strongly 
suspected as giving expression to this group. Kennedy 
to be sure, does not desire an outright Hitler victory, 
but would like to see a negotiated peace at this time 
and a Nazi victory. 

Most observers who have been In England in 
recent months report unmistakable signs of a social 
ferment-Indications that the rank and file of the 
people have lost all faith in the ability of the tory 
class to rule, conservatives like Kennedy see In thli 
social ferment something terrible; liberals see In it 
something that Is hopeful. 

The propaganda that socialism will come to Eng- 
land if the war continues much longer Is being feci 
to the big Industrialist and banking groups of this 
country with, telling effect. Nazi elements are en- 

ed. Some may think we are idiotic in our Ideas or 

that the ideas are '»« ^^r^ ft , propa5anda . Aldln g also are groups 

like the America First Committee, composed of a 
conglomeration of reactionary employers, industrial- 
ists, fascist-minded gentry,' Isolationists, and naive 
but well-meaning Individuals.

"Lend-Lease" : Plan Gains Support; 
Shake-up To Speed Defetase Pro- 

Despite ' strong opposition to 
President Roosevelt's "lend-lease' 
plan to aid Great Britain already 
developing In Congress, especially 
f/om the isolationist groups, it is 
generally agreed that the coming 
Congress will'out through the plan 
with very little. If any, modifica- 

Announcement of the aid plan, 
together with changes to be made 
in the defense setup, coming at a 
time when the defense program is 
admittedly far behind schedule, is 
taken to mean that this country Is 
about to go in for an all-out effort 
both for defense and aid t'o Great 
Britain. The country is to be plac- 
ed virtually on b war footing. 

It is noted, that the President told 
newspaper reporters that Edward 
Stettinius, one of the commission- 
ers in the National Defense Advis- 
ory Commission, likely "will serve 
his country" j in a production divis- 
ion, to be created. It had been an- 
nounced for some time that Mr, 
Stettinius was to be eased out of 
a position of importance, since he 
is said to have been too much con-' 
cerned with ; preserving the prerog 

books are not on the statute books 
just for the fun of it, that they, are 
expected to comply with these laws 
and that if management and labor 
cannot get together for the good 
of the country, ibere is no other 
course for the government to pur- 
sue than following the examples 
to ,be found in England and other 
European counties — nationalization 
of the defense industries. This is 
one argument that compels them 
to sit up and listen. Labor will nev- 
er object to such procedure. 

In that connection, it is said that 
Leon Henderson, economic advisor 
to the defense commission, is now 
working on a plan for nationaliza- 
tion of the aviation industry. Here 
is a club that the government can 
wield .with great persuasiveness. If 
reactionary employers are given the 
choice between nationalization' of 
their -industry and establishment of 
enlightened labor relations, they 
will not toss a coin to see what 
they will do. 

Rent Profiteering 

Profiteering in rents on a dis- 
turbingly large scale, government 
officials admit, is taking place in 
virtually all localities where de- 
fense industries and army canton- 
ments are located. In the former, 
tne low-income groups are the vic- 
tims, rents having gone up as high 
as 60 per cent. In the latter, it is 
the commissioned and non-com- 
missioned officers -who are being 
gouged. Small, poorly -turn ished, 



if England, France and the United States had '

for Prance were the drafters of the Treaty of Ver-

oppression that created the conditions that led UP 
to the present, conflict. Wilson, who had forced tne 
principles of the League of Nations into the -treaty. 
W as annihilated by his political enemies here at 
home, and mainly so because they wanted to get 
back into power at Washington. _ 

If mankind is to survive with a tinge of civili- 
zation, to it we must act in a more nvmanllzrl** 
manner, forget our petty ideas and do something for 
the uplift of mankind as a whole. Clemenceau and 
Lloyd George should have been, taken before the 
firing iquad for what they, did at Versailles. 

The outlook for 1941. therefore, is based on the 
Second World War. We will have better financial 
conditions here as long as the materials of war 
which we make are paid . for. When the war is 
over, then is the time to look out. 

There Is little possibility that United States wiU

What has become of those New Year 'resolutions 
we used to hear so much about in the old days? 

iLest the youngsters may not know about the 
former custom, it should be stated that forming a 
"New Year's resolution" consisted principally in a 
person acknowledging his shortcomings or his sins, 
or both, and making a high resolve that he would 
forsake the old road ana follow a new and better 
one during the New Year to come. 

Thus the lay-abed would -decide to get up on 
the first tinkle of the alarm clock, the' dilatory far- 
mer would get his work done on time and the crops 
in early, the nagging partner would resolve to bridle 
his or her tongue, and all In all, everybody would 
-plan on eliminating some of the. undesirable charac- 
teristics common to the past year. 

Whether or not plans are being made by many 
people for the betterment of themselves and better 
conditions for their neighbors is not known to this 
writer. Perhaps it is Just not the fashion to talk 
about what people hope to do or to see done. Per- 
haps the cycle is swinging to the point or self- 
enjoyment, and other persons and their potentiali- 
ties are forgotten. 

Whatever is being done, it is a safe plan for 
those who have positions of power and trust to take 
a new look at their Job and a- new look at the rights

t Efforts of, reactionaries to make 
labor the goat for the lagging de- 
fense program have not been suc- 
cessful. It is obvious that their 
game has been to lay the ground- 
work for pasSage of -anti-labor leg- 
islation. Also, they want to circum- 
vent any attempt of labor to organ- 
ize the workers hi the defense in- 

The Administration undoubtedly 
is giving serious attention to the 
problem of defense production con- 
tinuing "without interruption,, but 
FOR is not looking at it the way 
the tories would want him to. The 
President has let it be known that 
he will not consent to sacrifice gains 
made by labor in recent years, nor 
in any lowering of labor standards. 
It is not necessary, he points out. 
Sidney Hillman's position in the 
new defense setup is assurance to 
labor that the reactionaries will 
not have their fway.

employers are to be told by Admin-

Three reasons why the boost in 
funds will be asked were cited by 
President (Ford as follows: 

1. Because public education is 
more important today than eyer 

2. Because the anti-democratic 
forces aflame in the world "have 
everywhere overthrown educational 
freedom where they were victor- 

3. Because the maintenance ap- 
propriations by the state to tht 
University of Minnesota have, far 
from kept pace with the growth in 

Price rises, which will reduce the 
power of each dollar of appropria- 
tions, a continuing increase in the 
number of students graduated from 
Minnesota high schools, source of 
future university enrollment, and 
a longer average stay, per student, 
at the university were among other 
factors given by President Ford for 
the Increase. 

The report also points out that 
state funds available per student at 
the University have declined from 
$384.91 in 1921-22, when there were 
8,983 students, summer students ex- 
cluded, to $216.15 in 1933-40, when 
there were in attenaance 17,626 
students of college rank, summer 
students, again excepted. 

For the coming biennium the re- 
gents are asking for $4,475,000 per 
year as against $3,540,000 annually 
in the current biennium. In this 
regard they set their estimate ot 
other income to be received by the 
university in each year at $3,168,000 
which is the same figure in pre- 
paring estimates for the present 
college year.

Dec. 21, 1940 
Editor Tri-County Forum: 

Sorry to hear about the passing 
of late Hon. M. A. Brattland, our 
reelected district judge-^but this 
can't be avoided. That's a natural 
process, and we all have to die 
;ome time. So on the 13th of De- 
cember his heart stopped beating 
for those down trodden, poor, and 
oppressed — not only - in his home 
country but all over the world. 

He was one of the many unpro- 
fessed, intellectual and high stand- 
ing officers of the U. S. who signed 
a petition to president Vargas of 
Brazil and asked him to free Lois 
Carlos Prestes, imprisoned liberal 
leader of that country whose wife 
was deported from Brazil to Nazi 

- This shows he kept himself post- 
ed on what was going on outside the 
U.- S. and without hesitation lent 
his name to help these persecuted. 
Honor to his memory. 

It is gratifying to hear how our 
inteligency start realizing the fact 
that /public owriership is, or would 
be, the only cure for all the troub- 
les present and future, caused by 
invention of all kinds — labor sav- 
ing machines — not war — war is de- 
structive in every direction. By 
dividing the work among all the 
citizens to give everyone a chance 
to earn his own living without gov- 
ernment support. This can't be done 
so long as the basic industry Is in 
private hands and those who own 
the. labor saving machines have no 
obligation to the Nation as a whole 
except paying -taxes. Even this, in 
many instances, is more or less cu- 
short. Hoping for a better and lust- 
ful condition, — I wish to the Editor 
and to all the readers a. Merry 
Christmas and a very Happy and 
Prosperous New Yeqr- 

Sincerely yours,

. The Research Institute of America, inc., New 
York City, tells- its members how they can mani- 
pulate things so as. in effect to cheat Uncle Sam out 
of his just taxes. 

On the assumption that "higher taxes are a 
foregone conclusion next year," the Institute advises. 
"The average taxpayer, faced with stiffer taxes next 
year and the probability of more income, will find 
it good strategy, as. a general thing, to accumulatt 
income items this year and push deductions oyer 
into the next year. If this is done, income with 
probably fall subject to less severe rates this year 
and the deferred deductions will be more useful. next 
year in offsetting income." I 

The institute also advises its members to give 
employees bonuses rather than wage increases, if it 
becomes necessary to increase employee «mj n «* 
due to increases in living costs. This method, it 
points cut, will reduce the amounts it may be re- 
quired to pay for overtime since it will involve no 
increase in basic wages, and later, when the proper 
time comes; will make it easier to reduce employee 
earnings. Wage reductions are more difficult -to effect 
than merely cutting out bonus, it argues.

It has been, customary for. Eng 
lls h and European' commentators 'to'' 
dlsparge American political insti- 
tutions; even so friendly a critic 
as Lord Bryce felt that the Ameri- 
can people .were far better than 
their government and that Ameri- 
can democracy succeeded almost in 
spite of the political machinery 
through which it functioned.. Mr. 
Laski's attitude is far more under- 
standing and appreciative. Thor- 
oughly familiar with English -and 
Continental political forms, he does 
not think American institutions ec- 
centric because they depart from- 
European models, and he is pre- 
pared to' judge American institu- 
tions hi' results. 

The particular institution which 
Mr. Laski has here subjected to 
examination and interpretation Is 
the Presidency. He has tried to ex- 
I plain its history, functions, and 

sought to tinge him with 
fceta. a "red". and that apparently failed so now

Perhaps George Hagen, Polk county Farmer- 
Laborite and House Leader, when he announced that 
he would join the Democratic party will be the 
forerunner of a coalition that both the (Farmer-Labor 
party and the Democratic party have been trying to 
bring about for the past few years. 

Maybe George is on, the right track. But it will 
never come about If he is only one of a few leaders 
to join the Democratic party. If a number of lead- 
ers continue in the Farmer-Labor party, the liberal 
parties will be split more equally than they are 
now,- which would mean even more security for the 
Republican party of Minnesota. 

It has been this writer's opinion in the last few 
years that it doesn't make much difference whav 
label the liberal party of Minnesota runs under as 
long as' they are united. One can visualize a strong 
united party that would practically spell doom to 
the present administration if the leaders of the Far- 
mer-Laborites and Democrats, as well as the rata

gaining momentum and the greatest precaution must 
be taken 'to avert a war hysteria similar to that 
which brought; this country Into the first world war.

continues it is planned to discuss 
"some questions that have recently 
been raised about the issuance of 
learners and apprentices certifi- 
cates particularly in the light of 
national defense needs." 

The meeting of the labor advis- 
ory group will be held Jan. 8 and 
9, and the consultation with Mr. 
Fleming will take place on the 
morning of Jan. 10, if it is conven- 
ient,- according to tho notice. 

Discussion of asking congress to 
amend the wage-hour act took plac?; 
in the wage-hour division during 
the drafting of the division's an- 
nual report, not yet released, it was 
learned here. 

According to one account, the dis- 
cussion never got beyond the talk- 
ing' stage, persons in the division 
believing that such a recommenda- 
tion in the wage-hour report would 
onen the door to a flood of destruc- 
tive amendments prevailing. 

According to another account 
such, a" recommendation was incor- 
porated in the report and was 
stricken at the insistence of the 
labor division of the National De- 
fense Advisory Commission. 

Thus the situation appears to be 
that the wage-hour division, while 
not recommending "perfecting" the 
amendments in its report, is still 
toying with the idea of presenting 
ome amendments to the coming 

determined to be the prevailing rate 
of pay under the Bacon-Davis act. 
The congressmen, however, were 
in a sweat about their necks. Fear- 
ing that the roof would fall in, 
they have been demanding that the 
job be rushed. Consequently the

ity with contemporary political

Rep. Engel, incidentally, in 1939 
voted against relief, against hous- 
ing, for the labor board investiga- 
tion, against federal lending and 
against farm aid.

have the sense that they are a party 
of significant events." 

Laski's book Is more than de- 
t scrljrt±ve. J It, for a 
strong Presidency and a strong r 
centralized form of government. It 
Is an attack upon federalism and 
sectionalism, upon the power which 
our 'system gives to special classes 
and pressure groups. It is a clarion 
call for national unity and for lead- 
ership in a democracy. It is a ,potw- ' 
erful criticism of the disintegrating 
force of partisan politics, of pork: 
barrel legislation, of the selfish in- 
tervention in national affairs of 
sectional and class interests. 

On some of the more controffer- 
sial questions Mr. Laski's attitude 
is orthodox. He has an acute un- 
derstanding of the curious Ameri- 
can institution of the Cabinet, and 
would not have that institution 
changed; he votes therefore against 
the oft-made proposal to give Cab- ■ 
inet officers seats in Congress. He 
is fully alive to the embarrassing 
role often played by the Senate in 
foreign relations, but concludes that 
on the whole the American system 
works as well as the English or the ■ 
French. On only two matters, in- 
deed, does Mr. Laski suggest re- 
forms. He would- have the Senate 
abandon the system ct- "Senatorial 
courtesy" and he woula deprive the 
Congress of power to make appro- 
priations not specifically requested 
by the executive. 

This book has all the clarity of 
statement, .the felicity of phrasing, 
(the acute intelligence and reason- 
ableness, of such earlier books br 
Mr. Laski. It is not a. profound 
study, nor even an original one, bu- 
tt is throuehout reflective and sug- 
gestive. For purposes cf the averase

the Presidency in our literature. —

must happen, at least it's well to 
keep -it all in the family. Eacl' 
driving his own car. they collided 
at a Wadena intersection recently 
as both men watched a group of 
children in the street to avoid 
striking them. John's car is badly 
wrecked and he suffered several 
broken ribs. George, who was un- 
hurt, gallantly takes the blame a? 
he entered the intersection on 
John's left. His car was only slight- 
ly damaged.

European War Provides 
^Setting For Falls Movie 

Breath-taking excitement, ro- 
mance and drama, mystery' and in- 
trigue are unfolded .in the thrill- 
packed story "Foreign. Correspond- 
ent," which Is slated for a gala pre- 
miere at the Falls Theatre Satur- 
day Midnight. Sunday, Monday and 
Tuesday. "Foreign Correspondent" 
was' filmed in recognition of the 
intrepid group of American news- 
papermen who are serving as the 
nation's eyes and ears during the 
European debacle, risking their 
lives daily in order to keep their 
own people Informed of the rapidly- 
shifting panorama of war. 

"Foreign Correspondent" has in 
its principal roles Joel McCrea, Lo- 
ralne Day, Herbert Marshall, Geo. 
Sanders, Robert Benchley, Albert 
Bassenrian, Edmund Gwenn, Harry 
Davenport and Eduardo ' Clannelli. 
Most elaborate and extensive set- 
tings constructed for any produc- 
tion in "Hollywood in several years 
are those provided as backgrounds 
for "Foreign Correspondent." 

The largest setting is a recrea- ' 
tion of a square block of the heart 
of Amsterdam with Its stores, build- 
ings, streets, lighting system, tram, 
lines and all the other details that 
go to make up such an area of a 
large city. This setting is highly 
important as one of the most dra j 
matlc episodes of the picture occurs 
there. In all, 72 settings are Includ- 
ed in "Foreign Correspondent", 
among them, several London streets, 
a reproduction of the Dutch coun- 
tryside covering a large sound stage 
and a transatlantic Clipper ship 120 
feet bv 84 feet, so exact in its con- 
struction that with a few minor 
changes and the addition of mot- 
ors it could be made to fly. 

Producers cf market hogs can 
look forward to improvement in 
the price situation during the com- 
ing year, although they will for a 
time be handicapped by an unfav- 
orable corn-hog price ratio, accord- 
ing to a survey of outlook informa- 
tion recently completed by Ernest 
B^ughman, assistant extension 
marketing specialist at University 
Farm. Hog production dropped off 
10 per cent in 1940 from the 1939 
peak. With an unusually large per- 
centage of this year's crop market- 
ed early and no immediate increase 
of farrowing in sight, economists be- 
lieve that the 1940-41 production is 
likely to remain fairly constant. 

Export demands for .pork and 
lard are likely to continue weak, 
but the prospects for increased do- 
mestic consumption are good.

Bird Banded Sixteen 

Years Ago Is Found 

A banded bird found dead near 
the S. O. Johnson home in SWift 
'county la.^t October was .bandqd 
more than 16 years ago by F. W. 
George at Aberdeen, S. D., accord- 
ing to a report received by Game 
Warden Roy T. Gordon of Kerk- 
hoven from the federal division of 
wildlife research. The" bird was a 
bronzed Grackle and was banded 
on Aug. 17, 1924. Birds are banded 
by volunteer cooperators in the U. 
S. and' Canada and serve without 
pr.y for the purpose of learning the 
migratory habits and other facts 
about- the life histories of North 
American birds. 

The teacher had asked the class: 
to name all the states. \One' small 
urchin responded so quickly and" 
accurately that she commended hirrt 
for it. 

"You did very well;" she said, 
"much better than I could have 
done at your "age." 

"Yeah, and there wuz only 13 
states thenj too."

"Lady With Red Hair", story of 
the Dayton girl whose blazing red 
locks and ambitious green eyes fas- 
cinated a generation ^ of theatre- 
goers in the Gay Nineties era has 
been produced as a motion picture 
with Miriam Hopkins as Mrs. Les- 
lie Carter arid Claude Rains as 
Belasco. The picture has its first 
local showing at the Avalon Sunday 
and Monday. 

Mrs. Leslie Carter's very exciting 
life story, which' is followed closely 
in the picture, begins in Dayton, O. 
because it was there,- in 1880, that 
she married Leslie Carter of Chi- 
cago. The wedding was one of the 
social highspots of the' decade. 
'Their marriage was unsuccessful, 
and when they were divorced ' in 
1889, custody of their little son was 
given to Mr. Carter. 

Caroline Dudley Carter at 28 had 
n»ver acted ori any stage. But act- 
ing was the career she chose. She 
chose it, she related, because it was 
the only chance she, had to -earn 
a lot of -money and a lot of fame 

The rest of the life story of the 
"Lady With Red Hair" Is fairly 
well known because it is theatrical 
history. . ' '*■ 

Mrs. Carter died in Hollywood in 

November, 1937, red-headed to the

Sadden Death of Mrs. Muir 

Mrs. Josephine Muir of Undsell 
township died alone in her home 
in Lindsell township some tune be- 
tween Friday evening and Tuesday 
morning. She lived alone on her 
farm and had been seen (by the 
neighbors on Friday. No one noticed 
her around on Saturday, but noth- 
ing was thought of that as she 
often walked around the neighbor- 
hood. On Sunday the children of 
Aldrick Lund took her mail over 
as they had often done before. Not 
getting any response to their request 
for admittance they left the mail 
in the outer doorway. Nothing be- 
ing-seen of her either Sunday or 
Monday, __.dr.cK_ Lund went over 
to the Muir home on Tuesday to 
investigate. Finding the mail still 
in the doorway he apprehended that 
something was wrong and entered 
the house to investigate, with re- 
sult, that he found Mrs. Muir dead 
on her bed. She was fully dressed 
and had a lighted lamp, turned "low 
by her bedside, so the natural in- 
ference Is that she laid Mown in 
the evening to rest and read, either 
Saturday or Sunday evening. The 
county authorities werp notified on 
Tuesday and Deputy Coroner Fors- 
berg and deputy sheriff Johnsr.n 
came over and made an investiga- 
tion that evening. 

She had been a victim of a weak 
heart for many years and the find- 
ing of Forsberg was that she died 
from heart failure. A wrapped up 
flatiron was found at her feet which 
evinces that she was feeling poorly 
when she lay down. 

She was one of the early settlers 
of Lindsell, having homesteaded 
there about 1916.' She was born at 
Homesville, Penn., in 1874 and at 
the time of her death was- 66 years 
of age. She was the fourth ^n a 
family of eight brothers and sisters, 
and was a sister of Mrs. R. D. V. 
Carr. She had two living children, 
Margaret of Chicago and James R. 
Garey of Duluth. She was buried 
in the "Randen cemetery on Sunday 
afternoon beside her departed hus- 
band, James Muir, who died in 1929 

The unusually tragic feature of 
the whole course of the events of 
the death and burial is the fact 
that her son James had no Inkling 
of things untlP he walked in on 
Christmas day and found her dead. 
He had left Duluth on Tuesday af- 
ternoon, stopped overnight at Be- 
midji and continued on his journey 
Christmas morning Intending to 
spend Christmas with his mother. 

This unprecedented mild holiday 
weather has disrupted calculations 
of both the rink committee and the 
skaters of the village. The warming 
house which has been placed on 
the ice of the river channel above 
the bridge, has had to be raised up 
about a foot to prevent its being 
flooded by the flow of the river. 
The young generation, too, who had 
anticipated/ such a Jolly holiday 
season of skating have been greatly 
disappointed by the continuous 
mushy condition of the ice. 

Miss Mickey Peterson, teacher at 
Lancaster, and is at home for her 
holiday vacation, had the misfor- 

tune of falling and breaking an 
arm while skating the day before 
Christmas. . 

Roy Ingalls writes that he is en- 
joying a holiday visit with relatives 
of himself and his wife in the far

states that he "found thi n gs very 
interesting there, and that enroute 
there he had visited Mrs, W. J. 
Ledin at Rudyard, Mont.

The Roseau River Flood Control 
association was informed last week j 
by Dean Holm, St. Paul, executive 
secretary of the Tri-State Waters 
commission, that work on the Ro- 
seau river project will be delayed 
for about two years. The delay was 
caused by the granting of author- 
ity by the chief of engineers to 
include a study of benefits to be 
derived aiong the north fork of Two 
Rivers from an increased low water 
flow. Two Rivers is in Roseau and 
Kittson counties. The new survey 
will take considerable time, Holm 
pointed out.

2. in case of loads of unusual 
length or width, permits for thelr

limits, may be obtained 1 at any one 
of the sixteen district maintenance 
offices or at the central office at

Roosevelt's Talk On Aid 
To Britain Well Received 

rContinued from Pairs One! ' 
assistance for Britain and a stern 
arraignment of what he defined as 
the axis philosophy of government. 
-The axis." he charged, "not 
merely admits but the axis pro- 
claims that there can be no ultim- 
ate peace between their philosophy 
of government and cur philosophy 
of government." 

The presidents talk with the peo- 
ple — believed to have commanded 
the largest radio audience ever to 
hear any similar pronouncements 
of his— touched on 10 major points, 
In elfect, they were: 

1. -Never before since Jamestown 
and Plvmouth Rock has our Amer- 
ican civilization been in such dan- 
ger as now." 

2. Greatly accelerated munitions 
production was imperative, even at 
the sacrifice of luxury goods and 

3. A steady flow of increasing aid 
-would continue to Britain, as a vit- 
al -part of the U. S. defense pro 
gram, regardless of "threats" fron 

4. "Our national policy is not dir- 
ected toward war. Its sole purpose 
is to keep ,war away from our coun- 
try and our people," by helping 
make possible British victory. Talk 
of rjlans for a prtsent day American 
expeditionary force is an "untruth. ' 

5. There (would be no appease- 
ment and no American efforts, un- 
der present circumstances, to bring 
about p. "negotiated peace." 

6. "British strength is growing. I 
believe that the axis powers are 
not coin:? to win this war." 

7. "Military necessities" will dic- 
tate the volume of future aid to 
Britain — an assertion some thought

3. "Th? ncticn expects our de-- 
fense industries to continue opera- 
tion without interruption by strikes 
or lc-cT:cu:=. with management and 
worker adjusting any difference by 
voluntary or legal means." 

9. "Evil forces are already with- 
out our own gates" seeking to fo- 
ment dissension,' sometimes with

2-Day Sale Of Purebred 
. Lftestock Will Be Held 
/During Winter Shows 

The largest S3le cf purebred live- 
stock in many years will be spon- 
sored; by the : Red River Valley Live- 
stock association this winter as a 
result of-, action! taken at a recent 
meeting of, the sales committee. The 
committee 'approved a two-day auc- 
tion sale to (be held Feb. 6-1 in 
connection with, the Red River Val- 
ley Winter Shows at Crookston. 

It is the .first time in the history 
of the event that a .two-day sale 
has been planned. The extension 
was made in order to take care of 
the large, number of animals which 
have already been listed, and also 
to give breeders a better chance to 
look over the stock. 

Already 127 head of purebred 
cattle, hogs, and sheep have .been 
consigned to the sale. In going over 
and. approving applications, the 
committee made selections based on 
type, quality, and condition of the 
animals to be-.sold. Steps havejdso 
been taken to protect buyersln the 
matter of registration papers and 
transfers. The advance sales list 
will soon. he available at the office 
of- the 'county agent. 

Purebred . livestock breeders from 
a wide'- 0i)e% in- and near the Red 
RiYer Valjey 'are consigning sires 
and suiiplus preeding stock to the 
Crookston sate this year. A num- 
ber of animals entered in the show 
have also bean listed for the auc- 
tion. ■ : . ' 

County Agent ' Lester A. Lemd 
pointed - dut . this ' week th!at tiie 
auction in connection with the Red 
River" Valley Shows .will provide an 
excellent, opportunity for farm#-s 
in this, county to pick up purebrea 
sires " that . tftiey will need. Those 
wishing to strengthen their herds 
witlibred females from some of 
the leading purebred herds in this 
part off the. .state will also have an 
opportunity 'to do so.

Farm Security Loans 
Should Not Be Made 
Hastily, Ommodt Says 

Like doing one's Christmas shop- 
ping early, there is good reason 
why farm families expecting to call 
upon the Farm Security Adminis- 
tration for operating credit should 
do so at this time of the year. This 
was explained >by Charley Ommodt, 
Farm Security Administration sup- 
ervisor in Marshall and" Pennington 
counties. He advises farmers ;i 
"think ahead" about their credit 
needs, instead of waiting until they 
get down to their last bushel of 

Mr. Ommodt pointed out that a 
fanner apolying new for credit 
which he will not need for several 
months may have it held for him 
and made available on a specified 
date. Thus, the loan does not begin 
to bear interest until it is actually 

"The advantage of applying in 
the winter Is that this is the in- 
between season/ when farmers can 
size up their past year's business 
and plan for the new' year," Mr. 
Ommodt stated. "The F3A Super- 
visor, too, has more time to help 
the farm family develop a farm and 
home management plan which is 
fundamental to our program, and 
often of more ibenefit than the loan 
itself. Sometimes the working out 
of these plans requires considerable 
time and every spring we are forc- 
ed to turn away applicants who 
apply too late to permit such plans 
to be drawn up. Many other farm- 
ers, while approaching us in time 
to receive the loans, find themselves 
caught "up in the spring rush in 
our office just when they are most 
pressed for time." . 

Farm Security Administration 
loans are made to farm operators, 
whether owners or tenants, who are 
unable to obtain credit on reason- 
able terms from other sources. The 
loans can be made for feed, seed, 
fertilizer, livestock, equipment and 
similar operating goods for periods 
of from ons to five years, with 
Interest at five per cent. 
The FSA Supervisor also called 
attention to . the Farm Debt Ad- 
justment service. This service, 
which is confidential and ' free of 
charge, hrings farmers and their 
creditors together in an attempt tq 
find a mutually acceptable solution 
of their difficulties. The service is 
available *o ,any farmer, or his 
creditor, on request, according to 
Mr. Ommodt, whose headquarters 
are at Thief River Falls. 



States and Canada will take part in the first squuad of the 

American Bowling' Congress tournament in St. Paul March 13. 

Flin Flon, Manitoba is sending two teams for this opening 

squad. They will travel almost 1,000 miles to compete. 

When the Flin Flon entries came to the home offices of 
the A. B. C. at Milwaukee the town could not be located on 
available maps, although a saHroad time-table disclosed its 
approximate position. 

Flin Flon is a town of 9,000 population, hard by the 
sixtieth meridian, 574 miles north of Winnipeg 1 and 92 
miles beyond that magical town of The Fas. 
Twelve years ago it wqs a little copper and zinc mining 
town but today it is a modern city with telephone exchange, 
radio station, train, airplane and telegraph service. In addi- 
tion to its mining activities it is a tourist, fishing and hunting 

The bowlers there compete in five leagues at the Elks 
club alleys. To prove that it is up to date it even has a , 
women's bowling league. 

A. C. Ball, recreational director of the Elks club, is an 
old A. B. C. competitor, having bowled in the 1920, 1923 and 
1924 tournaments. His all event scores in these three affairs 
were 1,761, 1,714 and 1,739 for a 193 average. j# 

In 1929 he received a silver medal from the congress Jfji 
for a 299 game bowled in a Regina; Sasku, league. ^ 

Flin Flon, which means "the friendly north," establishes | 
the record of being the city farthest north to enter a team 
in the A. B. C, Edmonton, Alberta, having been the former ■; 
record holder. '[ 

The following is a list of towns with teams on the \ 
opening squad: i

Women's Extension Project Leader 

Will Conduct Series Of Three 

Training' Meetings 

Postponement of the annual Farm 
Bureau meeting scheduled' for last 
Friday was necessary because of 
the bad .weather and blocked roads. 
Only about 'thirty people found it 
possible to attend the meeting. R. 
J. McKercher reports that it was 
decided to hold the meeting this 
coming Saturday afternoon at the 
Civic & Commerce room, at the 
Thief River Falls Auditorium, "at 
12:30 p. m. 

E. L. Freeman, superintendent of 
the Minn-Kata Power Assn. at 
Grand Forks has been engaged as 
the soeaker for the meeting next 
Saturday. Mr. Freeman will un- 
doubtedly conduct a discussion that 
will be of much interest to the 
Pennington County people, as the 
plans are that the local REA lines 
will be energised from the Grand 
Forks plant. In addition, a good 
program and lunch is assured the 

The program did go on last Fri- 
day despite the rather small turn- 
out. Carl A ash, county agent from 
Polk county, presented a 'number 
of interesting observations relating 
to the outlook for farming in the 
next few years. He pointed out the 
position of this country as far as 
foreign trade is concerned during 
the war that is underway, and also 
following the war. Farm products 
of which there is a large surplus 
raised in this country, such as 
wheat, cotton and fruits, face a 
gloomy situation unless there is a 
readjustment in production in cer- 
tain areas" of the country. The out- 
look for dairy, livestock, and poul- 
try .products, however, is somewhat 
favorable in view of an increased 
domestic market due to the defense 
program in this country- Ash fur- 
ther pointed out that he didn't ex- 
pect any price ' boom during the 
war, that higher taxes .were in 
store, and that farmers should li- 
quidate Their debts just as fast as 
posible durhig the period of fav- 
orable prices because following the 
war another depression is in view. 

Death came very unexpectedly to 
another of Thief River Falls en- 
terprising and progressive-business- 
men ea/ly Friday, as Charles Lieb- 
erman suffered a heart attack lats 
Thursday evening and passed away 
a few hours later, death coming at 
about 2 o'clock Friday morning. 
Mr. Lieberman was stricken while 
at the. Masonic club rooms. Medical 
aid was summoned immediately and 
he was taken to a local hospital. 
However, he failed to regain con- 
sciousness before he passed on. 

The remains were laid in state 
at the Larson Funeral Home Sat- 
urday afternoon and following this 
were taken to Duluth, his former 
home, where burial services were 
conducted at a chapel there Sun- 
day afternoon. 

Mr. Lieberman was born near 
Kovno, Lithuania, March 9, 1884. 
He emigrated to this country in 
1901. ■ coming first to New York 
City where, he was employed for 
several months. Later he came to" 
Duluth where he was employed in 
the trade that became his pro- 
fession, that of haberdasher and 
tailor. He spent several years pn 
the West Coast and later conducted 
a store at Bovey, this state. In 1913 
he located in this city where he 
became well and favorably known, 
having one of the largest and fin- 
est men's clothing stores in North- 
western Minnesota. He constructed 
a large, fine modern building two 
years ago which is evidence of his 
belief in the future of this .city 
He was a member of the Mason- 
ic, Elks and- Odd Fellows lodges 
and an 'active person in the affairs 
of the Civic Ss Commerce associ- 
ation. | 

He married Miss Frieda Dick, on 
Aug. 16, 1910, -at Duluth. To- this 
union were born one son, Sidney, 
and a daughter Leonora, both of 
whom survive him along with their 
mother. Sidney, ,who has been as- 
sistant manager at the store, was 
pursuing his third year studies at 
our State University at the time 
of his fathers' death.; Miss Leonora, 
who arrived at Duluth for the bur- 
ial services, is s, librarian at the 
Farm Credit department at Wash- 
ington, D. C. 

E. O. Peterson was advanced 
from vice president and cashier to 
president at the annual meeting of 
the stockholders of the Union State 
bank Tuesday. Mr. Peterson's re- 
port on the business of the insti- 
tution in 1940 disclosed that It was 
the best of any since the organi- 
zation of the bank. 

Harry Brumund was elected vice 
president; Archie W. Hensrua was 
promoted from, assistant cashier to 
cashier.. Rueben G. Johnson and 
Miss Laura Lund were named assis- 
tant cashiers. The members of the 
board of directors were reelected.

New judicial Officer Was Reared 
Near Warren; Court Chambers 
\ Will , Be t Moved To Warren 

Shortly 1 before we went to press 
last week we received a report that 
Oscar Knutson, Warren attorney, 
had received the appointment as 
district judge and this report was 
later confirmed with the official 
announcement by Gov. Stassen. The 
official announcement was" made 
Thursday morning but was not re- 
ceived here until later in the day. 
Mr. Knutson succeeds the late 
Judge M. A. Brattland who passed 
away recently. 

The new judge plans to establish 
his offices in the "Warren court 
house thus moving the court cham- 
bers from thiSydty .where they have 
been looated during the Brattland 
tenure. . 

Judge) Knutson has been practic- 
ing law in Warren since 1927 when 
he became associated in the law 
office of Julius* J. Olson, now as^ 
sociate justice on the Minnesota 
supreme court. He has been active 
in legal circles in this section of 
the' state and is a .past president 
of the fourteenth Judicial Bar as- 
sociation. He also was active in 
local affairs and at the time of his 
appointment was mayor of Warren. 
He was born at Superior, Wis., 
42 years ago where he received his 
preliminary education. Shortly after 
his parents moved to a farm in 
McCrea township. Marshall county, 
he entered the .Northwest School 
of Agriculture at Crookston and 
later also attended the Warren high 
school from ■•which he graduated 
in 1920. Later he attended St. Olaf 
College lor one year before enter- 
ing the University of Minnesota 
from which he graduated In 1927. 
He- is married and has three chil- 

In the announcement of his ap- 
pointment Gov. Stassen revealed 
that Mr. Knutson was -high man 
in the plebiscite held among the 
lawyers of the district bar associ- 
ation. Theodore Quale of this city 
was second", and Wm. L. Peterson 
of Lancaster third. 

Louis Benson, -a brother of for- 
mer Gov. Elmer Benson, will head 
the Farmer-Laborites m the Ninth. 
District during 1941. Mr. Benson, 
who hails from Mcorhead, was 
elected district chairman at the 
annual convention held at Mahno- 
men Tuesday. 

' The party went on record as op- 
posing fusion with the Democrats, 
a resolution to this effect stating 
that while the Democratic party is 
progressive under the leadership of 
President Roosevelt there are other 
prominent leaders of that party 
who are conservative, and who may 
at some future time again control 
the party. 

H. O. Berve, attorney of this city,, 
was elected permanent chairman, of 
the convention and Mrs. Laura 
Naplin, also of this city, was elect- 
ed convention secretary. The con- 
vention opened at 10:00 a. m. and. 
came to a close at about 5:00 p. m.

Pres ident Delivers "State Of 

Nation" Speech On Monday 

President Roosevelt Monday af- 
ternoon made his first speech to 
the new congress on the state of 
the nation, stressing the need of 
immediate and faster action for 
defense and armament production 
and appealed for widespread per- 
sonal sacrifices, in a national ef- 
fort to defeat the Axis powers lest 
they win abroad and then attack 
the Americas. 

After a few preliminary para- 
graphs he swung emphatically into 
the main theme of his message 
that the "aggressors" were still on 
the march, the "democratic way" 
was under attack the world over, 
16 months of war had blotted out 
democracy in "an appalling num- 
ber of independent nations, great 

and small," and: 

"Therefore, I find it unhappily 
necesary to report that the future 
and the safety of our country and 
of our democracy are overwhelm- 
ingly involved in events far beyond 
our borders." 

"That is why the future of all 
American republics is today in ser- 
ious danger." 

Quickly, then, he swung into an 
enunciation of three basic points 
of "national policy": 

"First, by an impressive expres- 
sion of the public will and without 
regard to partisanship, we are ccm- 
mitted to all-inclusive national de-

Many farm -wives in this vicinity . 
are providing well-balanced meals- 
with a minimum of cash outlay this 
winter, according to Miss Edna T. 
Olson, Home Management Super- 
visor for the Farm Security Admin- 
istration in Pennington and Mar- 
shall counties. To these women, . 
"Live within your income" means 
not scrimping to make ends meet, 
but living well on an abundance 
of home-grown food. 

"Producing a family living, right 
on the farm is provided for_ by a 
home management plan, which. 
Pennington and Marshall Countv 
farm families have already worked 
out with our help and guidance." 
,Miss Olson explained. "This plan 
"anticipates family living needs for 
the coming year, from the cod liver 
oil for the children to shoes for 
every member of the famuy. its 
most important provision being the 
home food production budget."

The method used is simple. Under existing regu- 
lations, the country of original transmission retains 
the fees for delivery, and the country where inter- 
national mail is finally distributed makes the de- 
livery free of charge. So the Nazi government mere- 
ly turns out the required stamps, attaches them to 
any propaganda it wishes to distribute in America, 
and starts it on the Journey to this country. Uncle 
Sam handles the mail free once it gets to America. 
The German propaganda ministry has compiled 
a huge mailing list of Germ an -Americans living In 
'he United States. Each one on the list is subjected 
to a constant bombardment of propaganda printed 
in both English and German. Many receive bundles 
of fifty or more for distribution among Americans 
who are not on the regular mailing list. 

The system is so designed that few German- 
Americans can get awayi from constant reminders 
that 1 they are of German extraction and should re- 
main loyal to the Nazi form of government. Because 
there is no American- censorship, much of the ma- 
terial contains attacks against the President, the 
United States system of government, the American 
press, capital, the Jews, and other groups— and the

Trespassing On Capitol Hill

Burma is about the size of Texas, with a popu-

■ The Wall' Street Journal believes 
that "any effort to apply taxation 
to outstanding exempt issues (se- 
curities would constitute an im- 
moral if not an illegal act on the 
part of the government." 

Wall Street's Program 
Revealed By Dr. Anderson 

Dr. Benjamin M. Anderson, pro- 
fessor of economics at the Univer- 
sity of California, economist of the 
Capital Research Co. and former 
economist for the Chase (Morgan) 
National Bank, can always be de- 
pended upon to speak the mind of 
Wall street. At this time, when a 
new Congress is to assemble, his 
views as to what this Congress 
ought to do is of special interest, 
since many of the boys on Capitol 
Hill will be plugging for these views. 

Dr. Anderson's recommendations, 
as printed In the Pacific Coast Wall 
Street Journal, are: 

Reorganization of the tax struc- 
ture by broadening the income tax 
base through lowering of exemp- 
tions; increase of income levies in 
the lower brackets; lowering of the 

gates are opened to war profiteer- 
ing, if ;taxes are cut down so that 
we can hog most of the easy prof- 
its, if the bulk of the defense costs 
is placed on the frail shoulders of 
the little fellow, and if the worker 
is given a sock on the head with 
blunt instrument — a sock hard 
enough to stun him but not hard 
enough to put him out of condi- 
tion so that he cannot work." 
Some day the people are going to 

-and speak the President's mind— better than Harry 
Hopkins, who has been living under the White House 
roof for many months. There is nobody whom the 
President would batter trust with a most delicate 
mission. That he is making the trip despite the con- 
dition of his health emphasizes its importance. He 
will be a Colonel House plus. Incidentally, the Ad 
ministration's "lease-loan" plan to aid Britain *■ 
thought to be Hopkin's "brain-child."

banks during the first nine months 
of 1940 totalled 6,414, as contrasted 
with 14,629 for the same period in 
1939, Governor A. G. Black of the 
Farm Credit Administration reveal-

there to Kunming is 598 miles. The first part of the 
country is through rich, level rice country, with 
villages, pagodas and rice mills dotted along the

with teak forests and inhibited largely by hill tribes. 
When China is reached, the highway winds up 
mountain sides as high as 8,000 feet, and then des-

In spite of all the talk made by leaders of

state indebtedness and the state deficit is lncreasuij 
says the Mille Lacs County Times. The deficit, m

according to the following editorial in the St. faul

of Big Business. That is exactly 
what the' big financial boys have 
been trvir.g to t 'bring about^-and the 
conservatives on Capitol Hill have 
pretty much been following that 
line. But it doesn't' look like Roose- 
velt will let the reins fall from his 

downward revision of the corporate 
excess profits tax. 

Early revision of the Wage-Hour 
Act, "the most dangerous single 
piece of New Deal legislation," par- 
ticularly abolition of the time and 
a half feature for overtime. 

Reorganization of the Federal 
tax structure along the above lines, 
says Dr. Anderson, would "spur 
private capital into action to aid in 
the defense .program, .encourage 
those with money to put it to work 
in industry— and bring a quick mo- 
bilization of American industry for 
war purposes." He says that "this 
is no time to worry about making 
millionaires out of the war." He 
does worry, however, it seems, that 
workers may be making a llvint; 
wage during the emergency period.

Hillman Given Increased Power 

Sidney Hillman, labor commis- 
sioner of the National Defense Ad- 
visory Commission, wU have much . 
greater power than he now has in 
the capacity of associate director 
with Knudsen of the Office of 
Production Management. 

The fact that Hillman accepted 
the responsibilities of the new po- 
sition: is accepted as proof that the 
Administration has promised not to 
let him down on matters of labor 
policies. Hillman knows that if he 
will be unable to protect labor's 

land bank loans increased mar 
than 22 per cent in the 12-month 
period ending Sept. 30, 1940— but 
rather to the policy of leniency 
adopted by the FCA since this for- 
mer independent agency was plac- 
ed under the Department of Agri- 

Under its set-up as an independ- 
ent agency, the big .bankers, from 
behind the. scenes, largely controlled 
the policies of the FCA. Thus its 
policies were made to conform with 
bankers' policies, which included 
ready foreclosures in order to take 
possession of farm lands during a 
period of rise in farm land values. 

A Pointed Answer , 

Rep. Clare Hoffman, Michigan: 
(on the House Floor) "What reme- 
dy does the gentleman have in 
mind which would give the farmer, 
say, 25 cents an hour for his work 
while he is forced to pay $1.00 or 
$1.10 an hour for the pommon la- 
bor that goes into the things he 
must purchase?" 

Rep. Jerry Voorhis, California: 
"I may say that agriculture is a 
competitive industry- Many of the 
things that the farmer buys come 
from monopoly industries where the 
price is determined by the seller. 
The farmer by and large cannot 
determine his prices."

not look like the fat boys have

to take' some oi the stigma from the word "appease-

last week, said that' an; appeaser ''is nothing more

The so-called Associated Farmers of California 
raged against the 1803 j"day of rest law" at their 
recent annual convention at Fresno, California. This 
group, headed by banking, canning, and landholding 
overlords, spent most of their time inveighing against 
the decision of the California Supreme Court uphold- 
ing "secondary boycotts"! by labor unions and against 
the farm laborers having one day off a week.

The Associated iFarmers are not to be confused 
with the hundreds of cooperative farm groups thru- 
out the middle-west, which are composed of real 
farmers who band themselves together to obtain a 
more equitable share of I the proceeds of their crops. 
Long known as "the Montgomery Street Farmers"— 
the Wall Street of Saii Francisco— this group has 
been in the forefrdht of the battle against organized 
labor for years. It is this group -which has fought 
bitterly against correcting the tragic conditions of

er and more furious. 

W.illiami Allen White, chairman 
of the Committee to Defend de- 
clares, "it I was making a motto 
for the ODABATA, it would be "The 
Yanks Are Not Coming." 

White's [committee numbers am- 
ong Its members some of the most 
socially elite of the county, people 
whose - love for British democracy 
stems in part from the fine tailor- 
ing of Bond Street and Saville Row. 
"The Yanks Are Not Coming" is 
the title of a pamphlet put out by 
west coast maritime workers whose 
leader is Harry Bridges, a man the 
head of the FBI definitely does not 

Rep. Martin Dies who also has 
a committee, hot long ago said "The 
Yanks Are Not Coming" is a sub- 
versive, uriamerican slogan. He im- 
plied that anyone using it was an 
unamerican from head to foot. 

Now William Allen White and his 
well-heeled (in more ways than 
one) committee says that if they 
were going to have a slogan it would 
be the slogan devised by the mari- 
time workers for all workers. 

Perhaps the Kansas editor has 
decided that Inasmuch as he can't 
lick 'em he'll jlne 'em, a policy that 
has had ardent supporters for some 
time.* ! 

And just to show what this in- 
dicates atiout the pace of events, it- 
might be I recalled that it was not 
until recently that 18 of the 20 
immediate demands made by the 
Socialist Party under Eugene Debs 
at Indianapolis in. 1912 became the 
law of the land sanctioned by the 
supreme court. 

The White committee, incidental- 
ly, could do a lot worse than spend- 
ing a little of the energy of sonm 
of its southern talent on a letter 
sent by |the Southern Conference 
for Human Welfare to President 
Roosevelt. , 

The letter charges! that during 
the past several weeks 'a systematic 
campaign of intimidation has been 
waged agahist the Negroes of -Mem- 
phis because some of the Negro 
leaders of Memphis dared to vote 
{or a presidential candidate other 
than the 'one dictated by Memphis' 
Boss Ed Crump. 

The .police, the letter charged, 
stationed 'men in front of the busi- 
ness establishment of Dr. J. B. 
Martin and searched prospective 
customers. Police commissioner Joe 
Boyle threatened to run a number 
of prominent Negro leaders out of 
town and has harassed editors of 
Negro newspapers. 

Leaders of an inter-racial relig- 
ious conference decided to cancel 
a meeting scheduled for Memphis 
Dec. 27-31 because of "reliable evi- 
dence that a build-up is being made 
for a rate riot to intimidate the 
Negro population and to discredit 
and terrorize the groups doing con- 
structive jwork, especially the CIO.'' 
"Mr. Crump," the letter states, 
is apparentlyVearful that the abo- 
lition of the poll tax system in the 
south will bring a measure of free- 
dom andi independence to the citi- 
zens of Memphis and make it more 
difficult for his machine to attempt 
to herd the voters to the polls to 
vote for his candidates. 

"He is' evidently determined to 
stamp out any movement for in- 
dependence In Memphis." 

The Southern Conference for

ed, was organized in Birmingham,

San Antonio's Mayor Maury Mav-

appointment of Joseph P. Kennedy 
as ambassador to Great Britain 
was for a similar purpose.

How electricity in rural areas is 
making an important contribution 
to the national defense program is 
dramatically told in the first his- 
tory of rural electrification to be 
written — 'Rural America Lights Up' 
by Harry Slattery, Administrator, 
Rural Electrification Administra- 

The author, capable and popular 
chief of the rural program that 
now serves over a million American 
farms traces the phenomenal 
growth of electrical development 
from 1910 to the present, and shows 
how in the past five years more 
American farms have been electri- 
fied than during the previous 50 

'Rural America Lights Up' tells 
how rural electrification new sup- 
plies power to 115 different indus- 
tries engaged in the defense, pro- 
gram throughout the country: also, 
how it has helped introduce labor- 
saving equipment to all the sec- 
tions it serves. 

The author writes that 90 per 
cent of REA self liquidating loans 
are made to cooperatives or other 
ncn-.profit organizations, and that 
as of October 1, 1940, leans had 
totaled S621.306.114. 

Farm electric rates have been re- 
duced from an overall average rats 
of 18c per kwh in the period from 

1910 to 1923 to 9c per kwh during 
the second period from 1923 to 1935 
-to 4!£ cents per kwh at pressnt. 
Lower costs of all materials used 
in rural distribution lines made pos- 
sible .by large purchases and im- 
proved engineering processes are 
credited with being the determin- 
ing factor in bringing costs of ener- 
gy down. 

Further lowering of cos's is made 
possible by "self-help" cooperatives 
whose members, at their own option - 
supply much of the labor, -under 
proper supervision for building the 
lines. Tn some instances these mem- 
bers cut the poles from native tim- 
ber and treat them in their own 
plants. The money thus earned by 
the cooperative members is used for '' 
wiring their homes and ourchasing 
appliances. These members, too, 
make group purchases of applianc- 
es resulting in savings of frcm 25 
to 40 per cent. 

Pointing out how '"REA demon- 
strates the functioning of the dem- 
ocratic process" Mr. Slattery said: 
"The very method by which electric 
cooperatives are organized and 
managed manifests true democracy 
at work and stimulates the fcourag? 
to make it work. Millions of .men, 
wemen and young people are being 
educated and trained in the appli- 
cation of democratic principles to 
industry and finance. REA has it> \ 
part to ulay in arresting rural de- | 
clint and restoring farm life to the 
vigor it possessed when the_ nation ■, 
was young." ">

"The re-election of President 
Roosevelt, the passage of the peace 
time conscription act and the huge 
appropriations made for defense, on 
the home front: with the ifall oi 
Norway, Denmark, Holland, Bel- 
gium and France, on the interna- 
tional front, constitute the out- 
standing political events of 1940," 
declares Howard Y. Williams of St. 
Paul, Minn., national organizer of 
the Fanner Labor Political] Fede^ 
eration, in his annual political re- 
view released today. 

"No year since the World War 
has been as full of significance as 
the year just closed. Here in Am- 
erica the re-election of President 
Roosevelt was the voice of the Am- 
erican people saying, 'No!' to the 
effort - of Big Business to put its 
heel once again on the neck of the 
workers and farmers. On the credit 
side of the ledger must also be 
nlaced the defeat of reactionary 
Senators Burke, Holt and King and 
Congressman Barton. Rcutzohn 
and Thorkelson, the veto jof the 
Walter-Logan bill, the failure to 
weaken the National Labor Rela- 
tions Law, the tolerant treatment 
of conscientious objectors, the elec- 
tion of Phillip Murray as president 
of the CIO, the interest taken in 
the exploited share-croppers thru 
public hearings by Congress and the 
filming of "The Grapes of Wrath", 
-and the will of the American peo- 
ple to give all possible aid to Eng- 
land but to keep out of war.

Federal Revenue Tax^s 
Reaches Lower Incomes 

The federal revenue act of 1949 
provides a very drastic change, as 
liability for filing Federal income, 
tare returns will be based on gross 
inccme rather than net income, as 
has been the case in past years. 

For the year 1940 all single in- 
dividuals with grcss inccme of SjftOO 
or more must file a return, and 
married persons with a combined 
grass income cf S2.000 or mere mus; 

Gross income is defined to be: 
Gains, profits, and income derived 
from salaries, wages, or compensa- 
tion for personal service, of what- 
ever kind and in -whatever form 
paid, or from professions, vocations, 
trades, businesses, commerce, or 
sales, or dealings in property, whe- 
their real or personal, growing out 
of the ownership or use of or in- 
terest in such property; also frcm 
interest, rent, dividends, securities, 
or the transaction of any business 
carried on for gain or profit; or 
gains or profits and income derived 
from any source whatever. 

Appropriate blank forms on which 
to file returns may be had upon 
application to the Collector of In- 
ternal Revenue. St. Paul, Minn., or 
frcm your Postmaster. 

The final date on which returns 
for 1940 may be filed without in-

Smoker Causes Most 
Damage In Forest jFires 

The careless smoker and the 
thoughtless meadow burner were 
indicated as the greatest offenders 
against Minnesota's forest resourc- 
es this week. | 

A survey by the Division \of For- 
estry disclosed that of 996 forest 
fires recorded during 1940, kmokers 
started 266 and careless meadow 
burning was the cause of 283. 

Lightning, frequently blamed for 
most forest fires, accounted for onh 
nine blazes totalling 12 acres. Land 
clearing was the third rpost dam- 
aging factcr with statistics showing 
that burning for-this purpose start- 
ed 133 fires. -

planned kitchen garden— a very- 
Important part of the home plan- 
not onlv yields plenty of fresh veg- 
etables from spring to late sum- 
mer," Miss Olson said, "but also 
provides those vitamins and min- 
erals which everyone, especially 
growing children, needs during the 
winter for building up resistance, 
and general good health." 

The yearly household budget in- 
cludes plenty of milk for the chil- 
dren and grown-ups, and a supply 
of meats such as home-preserved 
pork, lamb, beef and poultry. "After 
all," remarked Miss Olson, "it seems 
rather foolish to sell one's produce 
and then buy it back at a retail 
price. Isn't a farmer's best market 
his own dinner table?" 

The home plan is tied in .with 
a farm plan, which is worked out 
by the farmer with the aid and de- 
vice of the FSA county supervisor. 
The farm plan makes for improved 
farm practices, and includes the 
raising of calves, pigs and chickens, 
and feed for the livestock. Much- 
needed cash is thus released for the 
purchase of necessities such a; 
clothing, medical care, or a pres- 
sure cooker for efficient canning, 
and repayment of the loan which 
accompanies the farm and home 

"Long-term loans for the pur- 
chase of seed, fertilizer, and oper- 
ating equipment are made by the 
U. S. Department of Agriculture, 
j through the Farm Security Admin- 
istration, to deserving, low-income 
I farmers who can't get credit else- 
where,'! explained Miss Olson. "The 
borrower offers as his chief secur- 
ity his and his family's absolute 
willingness and ability to carry out 
the farm and home plans, the pur- 
pose of which is to reestablish tne 
family on a self-supporting, inde T 
pendent basis. No loan is made till 
its expenditure is carefully .plan- 

Miss Olson stressed the import- 
ance of planning ahead during the 
winter months, instead of .waiting 
until the spring rush of applica- 
tions for FSA loans. Farmers in 
need of financial assistance in Pen- 
nington and Marshall Counties get 
in touch -with the Farm Security 
Administration Supervisor, Mr. C. 
Ommodt, in the PSA office located 
at Thief River Falls. 

Carrying out conservation prac- 
tices on over 3 million acres of 
farmland, aid to farmers in secur- 
ing their fair share of the national 
income to the extent of $24,886,760 
in conservation and parity pay- 
ments, and the stabilization^ and 
maintenance of adequate food sup- 
plies for consumers through an 
Ever Normal granary filled with 
53,400,000 bushels of corn, wheat, 
barfsy and ryer highlighted the 1940 
Agricultural Conservation Program 
in Minnesota. 

Realizing that future food sup- 
plies must come from fertile soil, 
farmers of Minnesota entered the 
spirit of national defense by assur- 
ing future production on more than 
3 million acres of farmland. 

New seedings of perennial and 
biennial legumes antL^eFennial 
grasses were reported on hear! 
9DO.0O0 acres. More than 21,000 afcres 
of green manure crops were plant- 
ed. Small grain was seeded on |he. 
contour on over 10,000 acres and 
nearly the same acreage was strip- 
cronped. Contour furrows were re- 
ported on an additional 10,000 acres 
of apsture lanfd. 

A total of 412,000 pounds of ad- 
apted pasture grass seed was plant- 
ed on depleted pastures, as well as 
04,000 pounds of timothy and red- 
top and mixtures of the two. 

Future supplies of lumber so 
sorely needed in national defense 
were safeguarded on more than 
53,000 acres of wocdlots and for- 
ests. Seme 40,350. acres of forests 
were improved by farmers carrying 
out good forest conservation prac- 
tices, while an additional 13,503 
acres of woodlots were fenced off 
from grazing by livestock. 

In addition, -5,067 acres of forest 
trees were planted under the 1940

10.35, with bulk^medium grade at 
$7.50-9.00. Good and choice vealers 
brought $9.00-10.00, strictly choice 
$10.50-11.00. ] 

Hog trading ODened the week at J 
mostly 10c higher, with spots 15-25c 
up on' light lights. Much^ of this 
advance • carried through into the 
following session. However, the late 
Tuesday trade was generally 10c 
lower, making that day's prices 
steady to 10c higher compared with 
last week's close. Tuesday's top of 
$7.10 was paid on good and choice 
180-270 lb. barrows and gilts, while 
bulk 170-300 offerings moved in a 
$7.00-7.10 spread, and 300-360 lb. 
offerings cashed at $6.75-7.00. Most 
140-160 lb. light lights spread be-

lighterweights down to $6.50. Good 
sows of all weights cashed mainly 
at $6.20, a few late sales at $6.00 
and $6.10. 

Slight additional price strength 
was shown on fed lambs, with gains 
of as much as 15c recorded. Year- 
lings shared in this advance. Other 
slaughter classes were taken at a 
steady level. Western fed lambs pre- 
dominated in. the crop. Montana 
and Dakota fed lambs cashed free- 
ly from $9.50-9.65, largely at $9.65, 
which is also the weeks' tcp to date. 
Good to choice yearlings averaging 
102 lbs. realized $8.50. Choice west- 
ern fed slaughter ewes made $4.75, 
with natives tapering downward 
from $4.50 to $1.50. Shearing lambs 
advanced 25c, mived leads of fats 
and feeder.; 'selling for shearing 
purposes from $9.00-9.25.

Cramming an hour and a half

the same name in what is hailed 
as the top fflmusical offering of the 

The picture features Lucille Ball, 
Richard Carlson, Ann Miller, Eddie 
Bracken, Frances Langford, the Cu- 
ban sensation, Desi Arnaz, and Hal 
LeRoy. Bracken, Arnaz and LeRoy 
are among the many personalities 
transferred from the cast of the 
stage production to the screen ver- 

Eight of the most popular of the 
show's hit songs and a series of its 
spectacular dances enliven the film, 
with added features galore. 

The plot deals with a madcap 
heiress and her four-man body- 
guard, a quartet of all -American 
football stars who are keeping un- 
der cover after being hired by the 
girl's father to keep her out of 
trouble while she attends his old 
alma mater, Pottawatomie College, 
at Stop Gop, New Mexico. 

The girl's real reason for going 
to the institution is that a British 
author of whom she is enamored 
has a ranch nearby. Clint, the lea- 
der of the bodyguard, interrupts 
the meetings of the pair, and he 
and trre girl speedily fall in love. 
But an anti-romance clause in the

Troubles Always 

Come In Three's j 

Misfortune in large doses has be- 
fallen La Verne Moiison, 23 years 
old of Wheaton, who. broke his 
ri2ht arm when a reck hit a shovel 
while he was working on a. dam 
a few weeks ago. A shortfsimfe ago 
lie slipped on the ice at Graceville, 
and. unable to cussion his fall by 
using his arm .which ■ was carried 
in a sling, he cracked a leg in fall- 
ing. Riding to "Wheaton later with 
Miss Mildred Skoog of Graceville 
to get medical attention, he receiv- 
ed his third jolt -when the car in 
which they were riding got out of 
control on the ice and tipped on 
its side in a four foot ditch, from 
which, although unhurt, he found 
it extremely difficult to extricate 
himself with a broken arm and I 
cracked, and as yet unattended, leg. 



Gonrad Koch of near Alexandria 
astounded the crappie and perch 
fishermen on Smith Lake on a re- 
cent Sunday as he pulled out a 9 
pound wall-eye pike. No one on the 
lake had had any particular amount 
of luck during the afternoon with 
no bag boasting more than a few 
mall uerch or crappies when Con- 
rad pulled out his whopper. For- 
tunately, he had chopped a large 
hole in the ice or he would not 
have been able to pull the big fish 
through the hole after it was on 
the hook. 

Approximately 37,000 tons of 
lime, phosphate, potash and gyp- 
sum were applied to farmlands de- 
ficient in these minerals. 

To assist farmers in carrying out 
the various soil conservation prac- 
tices, the government paid to Min- 
nesotans some $19,000,000 in conser- 
vation payments. Wheat parity pay- 
ments totaled $1,694,541, while con. 
parity payments were $4,192,219. 

The conservation practices and 
conservation and parity payments 
were distributed over some 170,000 
i farms in the state, 
I Adequate food supplies are an 
essential t>art of any Nation's na- 
tional defense and Minnesota far- 
mers did their part by. storing some 
38,500.000 bushels of corn, wheat, 
rye, and barley in granaries on the 
farm, in -country elevators, and in 
terminals in Duluth and the, Twin 
Cities under the AAA loan pro- 
gram. In addition, the Commodity 
Credit Corporation has some 15,- 
000,000 bushels of corn stored in 
steel bins and country elevators 
throughout the state's corn area. 
This corn is under the supervision 
of locally elected county commit- 

■ The lean value of grain under 
seal and still owned by individual 
farmers is in excess of $25,700,000, 
while the corn held -by the CC'C is 
valued at $9,750,000. 

Controlled bv farmers are 10,014,- 
479 bushels of wheat, 26,833,036 bu. 
of 1938 and 1939 corn, 512,265 bu. 
of rye, and 2.052,599 bu. of barley. 
It is" the largest supply of grain for 
any year in the state's history. 

Although 1940 found cooperation 
in the AAA the peak, to date, the 
payments to individual farmers 
were sent out from the state office 
at the 'earliest date in the seven 
years of AAA programs in Minne- 

The smooth operation of the AAA 
in Minnesota in 1940 can be attrib- 
uted largely to a better understand- 
ing of the nrcgram by farmers, and 
to the excellent work turned in by 
locallv .elected community and 
county committeemen in charge of 
AAA nrograms in the counties. 

Besides handling all applications 
for conservation and parity pay- 
ments, and handling all papers 
necessary to cbtain leans for better 
than 53,000 applicants, county com- 
mittees started a sales campaign 
for wheat croo insurance which : .-> 
expected to' exceed 1940's 21.000 ap- 
plications by several thousand. 

Besides maintaining the fertility 
of the soil and preventing erosion, 
the conservation practices carried 
but on 170,000 farms in the state 
are proving very beneficial to wild- 
life as a source of fcod and cover. 
The 1940 program placed special 
emphasis on conservation practices 
that were beneficial to wildlife. 

Some 164 tons of com, wheat. 
barlev and rye. taken as samples 
by the county AAA committees and 
sent to the state office for grade 
and moisture determination, were 
turned over to the state Game & 
Fish commission during 1940 for 
wildlife feed. 

In all. the 1940 AAA program 
was the most successful to date in

President Conley of the Minne-

portance in the wool marketing in- 
dustry, such as James Lemmon of 
Lemmon, S. D., president of the , 
National Wool Marketing associa- 
tion, and Carl Nadasdy, manager 
of the state association, Yvill be pre- 
sent. -Mr. Conley states also "that 
the Minnesota pool sold two mil- 
lion pounds of wool last year and 
that with the large central ware- 
house at Wadena and a branch 
warehouse in Minneapolis the "co- 
op" will be able to handle five mil- 
lion pounds of wool in 1941. The 
i income producing central warehouse / 
at Wadena, representing an invest- 
ment of $15,000 has been able to 
return a -profitable return on iff- ■ 
vestment and give the wool grow- 
ers free storage. The central leca- - 
tion of the Wadena warehouse on • 
two federal, two state highways, and 
with two railroad lines has helped . 
greatly in keeping down the cost of 
assembling the wool clip."

When Otto Hotzler, Mountain 
Lake trucker, arrived at the Austin 
packing plant on a regular trip re- 
cently, he asked the yardman to 
weigh in a veal calf that he had on 
the scales. When he started the 
scale off at 100 pounds and then 
kept .working it up to over a ton, 
2500 pounds, his eyes popped and. 
Otto had his laugh, having justi 
brought in the largest buU ever toV 
reach the Austin - Packing plant. 
The 4-year old critter, weighing 
over 2500, was shipped to Austin 
from the E. C. McCann farm north

The epic and heroic Mormon 
trek along a trail of almost insur- 
mountable odds to ultimate free- 
dom is one of the most impressive 
chapters in the growth of America. 
Because cf the valiant battle they 
fought to find a place where they 
could live as they believed, much 
has been written about them and 
their leader, Brigham Young. This 
eclorful chapter in early American 
histarv is brought to the screen of 
the Falls Theatre Saturday Mid- 
night, Sunday, Monday and Tues- 

Steel-willed, a bom leader. Brig- 
ham Young organized one of the 
most astounding mass migrations 
in history, 3.000 prairie schooners. 
30.000 livestock, a whole, orderly 
civilization uprcoted. 20,000 pioneer- 
went on the move ..towards new 
frontiers. Only the will of one man 
held them together — that of Brig- 
ham Young, who was to have 27 
wives, build one of the worlds fa- 
mous- cities and found a great 

The first year at Salt Lake was 
one of desperate privation. Then, as 
if the hardships they had endured 
were not enough, millions of crick- 
ets swarmed out o* the canyons 
and attacked their fields. The Mor- 
mons, realizing that they could nev- 
er survive another winter of star- 
vation, dug ditches,; set fires and 
strove fishtily to destroy the new 
enemy. ; 

Brigham Young led the Mormons 
in prayer! Soon the sky was black- 
ened with thousands -of sea gu ll s, 
sweeping in five hundred miles from 
the Pacific Ocean to destroy the 
crickets and preserve the pioneers' 
:od supply. \y . 

Tyrone Power was given tha im- 
portant role of Jonathan Kent, the 
Monncn sreut in "Erigham Young.' 
Opposite him is beautiful Linda 
Darnell as "the outsider." Twie£ 
denied success in Hollywood, Dsa^ 
Jagger had returned to the New 
York stage where he had first made 
his mark. Last season he portray- 
ed Jesse James in ; the stage hit. 
■■Missouri Legend." : Rugged, two 
fisted, a capable a:tor, Jagger 
seemed ideal for the role cf the 
Mormon leader, and got it.

support of all those resolute peo- 
ples, everywhere, whp are resisting 
aggression and are thereby keeping 
war away frcm our hemisphere. By 
this support, we express our de- 
termination that the Democratic 
cause shall prevail; and we streng- 
then the defense and security of 
our own nation. 

We are committed to the propo- 
sition that principles of morality 
and considerations for our own se- 
curity will never permit lis to ac- 
quiesce in a -peace dictated by the 
aggressors and sponsored by ap- 
peasers. We know that, enduring 
peace cannot be bought at the cost 
*oi other people's freedom." 

To make the United States safe, 
Mr. Roosevelt said, "the immediate 
need is a swift and driving increase 
in our armament production." 

He reported that he was not 
■'satisfied with the progress thus 
far made" and neither were the 
men he has put in charge of the 

"None of us will be satisfied until 
the job is done," he declared. 
' All current domestic prcbl?ms. 
the president said, are linked to

'These who man pur defenses,

our defenses." the president said, 
"must- have the stamina and cour- 
age which come from an unshak- 
able belief in the manner of life 
which they are defending.

State Legislature Opens 
1941 Session Tuesday 

(Continued Prom Page One) 
named clerk of the senate, succeed- 
ing G. H. Spaeth, present tax com- 
missioner. CV Elmer Anderson, the 
lieutenant governor, presides over 
the senate. 

In his address, Stassen cited the 
contrast between the peace of Am- 
erica and the war-torn nations of 
Europe, citing the difference be- 
tween the scene before him and 
the scene in capitols of totalitarian 

As had been anticipated, Gover- 
nor Stassen made plain to the leg- 
islators — and to the people listening 
in on the radio hookup — his feeling 
that the legislative program of 1939 
and his administration of the laws 
enacted under that program had 
been a success. 

In the line of new legislation, his 
principal recommendation was for 
housing laws. He urged expenditure 
of $1,000,000 to start with, maintain- 
ing people in low income and relief 
groups were compelled to live in 
hemes inadequate in almost every 

He urged a program for the wel- 
fare of children and asserted that 
the state 4s operating on a balanc- 
ed budget, with $10,781,000 less state 
indebtedness than two years ano. 

A significant feature of his mes- 
sage was his advocacy of "thorough 
reorganization" of the depart- 
ment of education. This came in 
the midst of the heated controversy 
raging over dismissal by the board 
of education of Dr. John G. Rock- 
well, state education commissioner, 

The governor stood back of the 
labor relations act, ; recited what 
had been done under it in concili- 
ating labor troubles. ■ 

He claimed 60,000 employees had 
been added to private industry's 
payroll in the state under the pol- 
icy of encouraging business. 

Stassen declared the civil service 
act had proved successful and that 
much had been saved through 
more economical administration of 
the state government under the 
reorganisation act. 

He defended the homestead lien 
law, said not a foreclosure had re- 
sulted under it but that it prevent- 
ed shirking of- responsibility by un- 
scrupulous children. The governor 
recommended waiving the law 
where children could show they 
were unable to lielp support aged 
parents. ■ !

School Heads Will Give 
Views On Rockwell Case 

School superintendents have been 
asked for their opinions in the case 
between Dr. John G. Rockwell, sus- 
pended commissioner of education, 
it was revealed Wednesday. 

A circular letter was set out by 
the executive committee of the 
state council of school executives. 
asking members, if willing, to come 
to the aid of the school board with 
expressions of confidence or "facts 
bearing upon the present situation." 

The letter states: "It goes with- 
cut saying that if you feel Dr. Rock- 
well is being persecuted or. Seated 
unjustly, or if you have facts bear- 
ing upon the situation to establish 
the efficiency of Dr. Rockwell's ad- 
ministration, you are equally urged 
to state such opinion and present 
such facts to the board or to Dr. 

The Thieves, local hockey team, 
won two games and suffered its 
first loss of the season in games 
played in the past seven-day per- 
iod. The local pucksters defeated 
the Fargo-Mcorhead Comets in a 
game at the Fargo Sports Arena 
Thursday evening by the scare of 
7-3; on i Sunday the Pirates gave 
them the first setback by winning 
a 10-5 battle at Crookston, and on 
Tuesday j evening here the Thieves 
turned the tables on the Pirates 
by winning 12-6. 

The Grafton Millionaires will 
play thej Thieves here Sunday and 
on Thursday the Crookston Pirates 
again olay. here. The Thieves play 
at Grafton tonight (Thursday). 

At Fargo Thursday the Thieves 
were trailing at, the Comets in the 
first part of the bptrle. However, 
McMiUan, Kornek and Gustafson 
came to! the .rescue in the last per- 
iod and: put the game "on ice" by 
tallying for the Thieves to make 
the score 7-5. 

In the game at Crookston Sun- 
day, the| Pirates took an early lead, 
scoring four goals to the Thieves' 
one in the first period. The score 
was 7-2 ! at the end of the second 
period, but the Thieves played the 
Pirates on even terms in the last 
period, both scoring three goals. 

Taylor, a former local player, was 
going exceptionally well in the fra- 
cas, tallying four points for the 
Crookston team. McMillan was the 
best offense man for the Thieves, 
counting twice on shots. 

In the game here Tuesday even- 
ing revenge was taken for the ear- 
lier defeat. The local boys had a 
3-2 lead at the end of the Jirst 
period, !an 8-5 advantage at the 
termination of the second period, 
with a run-away staged in the fin- 
al setto that sent the tally up to 
12-6 for the local skaters. 

McMillan again starred for the 
Thieves, getting four goals. Kornek 
followed close behind as he tallied 
three points; Popiel and Beverly 
followed with two each, and Gray 

Taylor led the Pirates in the 
scoring, getting three tallies, Le- 
Doux scored twice and Julien once. 
, The Thieves continue to lead the 
Stains Dominion league with seven 
wins and one loss; Grafton follows 
in order with five -wins and three 
losses, Crookston third with four 
wins and six losses, and Fargo- 
Moorhead occupying the cellar po- 
sition with two .wins and eight 
losses. I 

The Prowler basketball team 
added two more victories -„o its 
standing the past -week, the wins 
being over | the two quints met on 
the week jend trip to the Iron 
Range. George Lee's team at Eve- 
leth was taken into camp on Friday

Grand Rapids was given a set-back

■ On Friday evening this week the 
Prowlers go to Crookston where 
.they play, [the Pirates In what is 
expected to be the game that will 
test the two strongest aggregations 
in the 31st District. Crookston de- 
feated Fosston 23-22 (before the 
holidays to show its strength as 
greater than the Undymen who 
defeated the Fosston team 21-19. 
There is a possibility that Russell 
Garness, the new Prowler center, 
standing 6 >ft. 2 in. may be in action 
against the Pirates. 

The Prowlers took an early lea'd 
over Geo. Lee's Golden Maroons 
at Eveleth Friday. Lindenmeyer's 
boys took la 15-6 lead at the end 
of the first quarter and had a 32-22 
stand-off at half-time. 

Flasch was again the spark for 
the Prowlers, scoring seven field 
goals and! the same number of 
points from the free throw -line. 
Berg. Althoff, and Parbst also add- 
ed a good lot of points for the 
local team. Coldagelli, a Golden 
Maroon forward, was the top scor- 
er on Coach Lee's squad, getting 
six field goals and one gift shot.

Here's the dope from the econo- 
mists who have been studying sup- 
ply, demand, and the other eco' 
nomic yardsticks to discover what 
the outlcok is for 1941. Livestock 
prospects are good, if you keep cost 
down and quality up. The profits 
so to the man who feeds cheaply 
and well. But, say the economists, 
don't push the farm business way 
out on a limb. It Is hard to see 
beyond a few months or a year.

To know your "holiday" blouse 
is made of rayon is only half 
enough when; it reaches the laun- 
dering stags. -There are three rayon 
prosei-ses— vi'.ccse,. cuprammonium 
and*' cellulose, acetate. Rayons of the 
viscose and cuprammonium process- 
es- elwuldt : -be-. ; washed with warm 
water anil' ironed with' a warm "iron, 
■61" thcymd.y ! be : dry cleaned. But 
acetate rayons are sensitive to heat 
and will' dissolve in -acetone solu- 
tions. Use only a warm iron on 
accrate's and be sure that neither 
you sicr the dry cleaners use a so- 
lution containing acetone ether or 
a^2tic acid. In other words, take a 
leak at the lr.bsl in the blouse. 

High! School Basketball 
Teams Are 'Evaluated 1 

The ; following paragraphs are 
sports comments from a Minneapo- 
lis Tribune writer of last Sunday: 
When Bemidji doesn't win the 
twenty-ninth district championship 
it is something unusual and that is 
apparently the case again. Coach 
Buck Robbins' crew is defending 
champion in the eighth region and 
may be on the way back to the 
state tournament again from all 

Twin Valley has a veteran aggre- 
gation |in the thirtieth, district again 
but signs of trouble ahead develop- 
ed when it was defeated by Fosston 
42 to :40 in two overtime periods 
just before the holidays. 

Thief River Falls, the oldest dis- 
trict champion in the state by rea- 
son of having won the thirty-first 
district crown four straight years, 
has not met any teams in its own 
area as yet, but has been spilled 
by both Bemidji and Detroit Lakes. 
While reports out of the thirty- 
second district report Roseau as 
not being as strong as a year ago, 
scores of early games indicate that 
is not the case at all. Instead, Ro- 
seau has been plowing ahead in 
impressive fashion so far. 

Breckenridge, winner of the state 
championship last year, apparently 
is doomed to yield that title as 
well as the sixth regional and twen- 
ty-first district crowns this year. 
That team, missing much of its 
strength, has been on. the short- 
end of scores pretty consistently 
since the start of the season. 

Detroit Lakes has scored victories 
over both Breckenridge and Thief 
River Falls to serve notice it will 
not relinquish its 'twenty-third dis- 
trict title .without a fight. Already 
doped one of the outstanding teams 
in the sixth region is C'rosby-Iron- 
ton, [defending champion in the 
twenty-fourth district. The Crosby- 
Ironton team has defeated such 
teams as Minneapolis Edison, Wa- 
dena 1 , Fergus Falls, St. Cloud, and 
Aitkin, while losing by only a slim 
to Duiuth Denfeld. 

The Prowlers found the going a 
little tough, at the start in the game 
at Grand Rapids Saturday, the 
home team having a 10-5 lead at 
the end of the first quarter. How- 
ever, the 1 Lindymen clicked better 
in the second quarter to have a 
15-12 lead at half-time. The Prow- 
ler lead was increased to 20-16 at 
the end of the third quarter. But 
Grand Rapids came back in the last 
quarter to trail by only 2 points as 
the final |gun sounded. Score 25-23. 

The Prowlers were weak again on 
the free-throw line, getting only 3 
points in' 17 chances. Grand Rapids 
sank 7 of the 14 free shots for 

Flasch 'was again top scorer for 
Thief River Falls, counting 1 14 
points on 7 field goals. Oftelie, a 
forward, jwas high- man .for Grand 
Rapids with 7 points. 

Today, Thursday, at 4:20 a pup- 
pet show will be. staged in the arena 
puppet theatre. It is the first show 
in three weeks, productions having 
been cancelled during the holidays. 
Snow White and Rose Red will be 
put on along with other shorts. 
Everyone is invited to these free 
shows, which are held at the same 
time every Thursday afternoon.

Seven teams started play in the 
local independent basketball league 
Wednesday of this week. Games 
are played on Monday and Wed- 
nesday of each week, with three

men may again romp around in

day night. That is the night set 
aside for their recreation. Basket- 
ball, Valleyball, badminton, and 
other games are available for them. 
Only a few turned out for the two 
previous nights, but this lack of 
participation has been attributed to 
the holiday business rush. It is the 
hope of city officials that this 
ccming Tuesday night will find a 
large crowd in the new gym. 

Starting this week as a new part 
of the program is the independent 
basketball league. Seven teams have 
entered from Hartz, Soo Cafe, J &

"Some specific information on

ins Jan. 1st, 1941.

^Local Meeting Last Week 

Considers Crop As 

Raised Here 

An intensive program to extend 
the use of properly cleaned .seed 
flax and a county wide study of 
cultural practices used by farmers 
in growing flax, were the two pro- 
posals that came out of the meet- 
ing of a group of Pennington coun- 
ty farmers Tuesday, Jan. 7. It was 
felt, by bottj the farmers and ele-* 
vator -men, that emphasis should 
be placed on a flax program, as 
flax is the most Important cash 
crop grown In the county. 

This program, it was decided, 
should be carried out by a county 
committee to consist of one farmer 
from each township in the county 
working together with the elevators 
in the county. The township com- 
mittee or township member of the 
county committee will do two 
things: first, they will collect in- 
formation early next fall from sev- 
eral farmers in their respective 
townships on a questionnaire re- 
garding seed bed preparation, time 
of: seeding, the preceding crop on 
the flax field, and other cultural 
factors, and also a small sample of 
flax for laboratory analysis. Sec- 
ond, arrangements will be made to 
set up a few demonstration flax 
fields in each community in the 
county, showing the comparison be- 
tween the use of clean seed flax, 
and the seed flax as the farmer 
would usually plant It. A part of 
the demonstration field would be 
seeded to clean seed flax and the 
other part would be seeded to the 
usual farmer's seed flax. 

A plan was. also discussed as to 
how the seed may be cleaned^ In 
the first place good facilities are - 
available at a number of seed hous- 
es in Thief [River Falls. Farmers 
who wish to carry on these demon- 
strations may have their seed clean- 
ed at the seed house at the regular 
cleaning rates. There is also avail- 
able another opportunity for hav- 
ing seed cleaned. The extension di- 
vision has a portable flax cleanin-z 
machine that does a gocd job, and 
the machine will be available for 
use for about two days work early 
In the spring. The flax cleaning 
machine can be set up possibly at 
two points in the county to clean 
lots of seed for fifty or sixty farm- 
ers, perhaps 25 or 30 bushels per 
farmer, for a cost of around two 
cents per bushel.

special session at the! opening of 
the year. This meeting usually 
consumed the entire week. 

On the final day the board ac- 
cepted the bid of the Lange Trac- 
tor & Equipment company of Du- 
luth for a new highway patrol unit 
and accessories. The bid was $7,331 
and will give the county a patrol 
unit similar to the two units now 
operated on the county's highways. 
These include an Adams tractor 
with complete snowplow equipment 
and grader attachment.

discussion, the majority of the 
members favored legislation In pro- 
viding for compulsory liability in- 
surance for all operators of auto-

Newf olden Man Arrested 
For Drunken Driving 

Hans H. Hanson of Newfolden 
was arrested by the local police 
early Sunday morning on Atlantic 
Avenue North in this city on the 
charge of drunken driving. In mun- 
icipal court Monday he was fined 
$35 and his driver's license sus- 
pended for 60 days. 

The state legislature got into 
regular activity this week at jSL 
Paul as Speaker Hall announced 
his committee appointments and 
the introduction of bills was start- 
ed. The liberal faction got few com- 
mittee assignments, though tnej 
didn't resent it publicly. [ 

Among the bills sent, first into 
the hopper were three for the Ire- 
peal of the old age lien law. One 
was by And. Hayford of Minnea- 
polis, another by Joe Prifel of jst, 
Paul, and the third by Thos. O*- 
Malley of Duluth. 

Hayford demanded a roll call] on 
his motion to suspend the rules 
and consider the measure without 
referring it to committee but, fol- 
lowing admonition by Majority Lea- 
der Roy Dunn, that the move was 
"very unusual procedure," the jef- 
fort by Hayford was voted down. 

O'Malley's bill would not only 
repeal the lien provisions of the 
law, but increase maximum assist- 
ance from $30 to $40 ,per month. 
To pay for the extra assistance,! hft 
introduced another measure to raise 
the state income tax one per cent ' 
on incomes of more than $6,000' a 
year. j .

ed Tuesday .by Speaker Hall of the

Restoration of the four-cent state

Compulsory retirement of schoo7.

was asked in a bill sponsored [by 
Rep. L. J. Gleason. Minneapolis.' 
Under the measure, teachers reach- 
ing 67 years by the end of June-, 
1941, would be retired: those reach- 
ing 66 at the end of the January

Forks high school will play 
Prowlers at the local High School 
gymnasium Friday evening in what 
appears to be of more local interest 
than games with the East Sider* 
have been in recent years. The- 
reason is that the calibre of oas- 
ketball played by the Little Green 
Wave team, as well as the Pirateg 
of Crookston and the Ponies' of 
Warren is more on par with that 
of the Prowlers so the ensuing 
scramble for the district title will

A Continuation of the Thief River Falls Forum 


Published Each Thursday by the 


Thief River Falls, Minnesota 

J. H. ULVAN, Editor-Manager 

Subscription $1.50 per year in the United States 

Entered as Second Class matter April 27th, 1932, at 
the post office at Thief River Falls, Minnesota, 
and re-entered under new title at same office on 
February 21, 1935. under Act of Congress of March 
2, 1897. 


The enormous sum suggested by the president 
for national defense in his message to Congress 
last -week Is almost beyond comprehension and we 
feel that it is getting ^ be too much so that a limit 
must be placed somewhere unless -we go bankrupt- 

We believe it consistent and to our benefit to 
' give all the aid possible to Great Britain with some 
understanding as to repayment of that which is 
not paid for in cash. We believe we should pay the 
part Great Britain has for so long a time: let some 
one else do the battling for us. 

That we should be forced to expend a sum of 
25 billion dollars on a defense program doesn't seem 
sensible. While no one likes to take chances, yet we 
believe that by giving all the aid we can to England 
it is reasonable to expect that Hitler and Mussolini 
■will be defeated. Under such conditions the enormous 
preparations here will be uncalled for. 

Of course, we will have to prepare to some ex- 
tent and, in addition, be on guard in regard to 
developments. But as we are -so doing work out a 
plan that will pay for the preparations while they 
are being brought about. 

It is consistent that we expend funds to the 
aid of the hungry and starving who are already 
with us. But to expend such an enormous sum on 
something that is more or less hypothetical isn't 
quite as consistent. . 

However, we are not of the Wheeler type that 
asserts the president is planning to sacrifice Ameri- 
ca's youth at the front. We feel Mr. Roosevelt is 
well informed on what is necessary, but that he is 
stepping too fast, at this time at least. 

Mortimer J. Adler, author of "How To Read A Book": 
"Reading, I repeat, is a basic tool. Those who 
can use it to learn from books, as well as be amused 
by them, have access to the stores of knowledge. 
They can furnish their minds so that the prospect 
of hours spent alone Is less bleak. Nor, in the hours 
they spend with others, heed they fear that hollow 
sound of empty conversation. 

"One— though not the only — justification of lib- 
eral education is that It! enriches us. It makes men 
of us. It makes us able to lead the distinctively 
human life of reason. Vocational training at its best 
can only help us earn' the living which supports our 
leisure. Everyone knows, 1 1 hope, that education is 
only begun, not completed, in school and college. 
Even if our colleges were doing a much better job 
than they are, it would still be necessary for all 
of us to continue our education thereafter. As it is, 
most of us have the problem of getting the educa- 
tion which schools and [colleges failed to give us. 
Education is still open ito all of us— whether we 
have had a schooling orjin spite of it. But only it 
we know how to read. \ 

"In a democracy, we must discharge the respon- 
sibilities of free men. Liberal education is here an 
indispensable means to tins end. It not only makes 
men of us by cultivating jour minds, but it frees our 
minds by disciplining them. Without free minds, 
we cannot act like free [men. I shall try to show 
you that the art of reading well is intimately re 
lated to the art of thinking well— clearly, critically 



The purpose of Hopkins' visit to Britain remains 
a closely guarded secret, but there is a strong sus- 
picion that; it evolves on' two things: telling those 
running the British government exactly what aid 
to expect from this country under any and all con- 
ditions, and, in return, extracting a promise that 
when the time comes to discuss peace this country's 
voice will be heard. 

It is assumed that the United States will not 
place itself in a position of giving all-out aid in 
defeating the Axis without some tangible assurance 
that we will have something to say about the kind 
of a world which will be shaped about the peace con- 
ference table. And we dont want a world shaped by a 
vindictive peace, no matter who wins the war. 


Claims and counter claims become very confus- 
ing in regard to the state's finances or its present 
financial status from reports in the Twin City news- 
papers of last Saturday. 'Julius A. Schmahl, state 
treasurer, states that the bonded indebtedness, has 
been reduced -eleven million dollars in the last year 
and a half. At the same time the Hennepin County 
delegation in the legislature asserts, through its sec- 
retary, Nathan Harris, Minneapolis research engin- 
eer, that his city's present financial predicament is 
entirely due to its relief' load and the seriousness 
of that situation is due in turn to the fact state 
contributions to the Minneapolis relief efforts have 
decreased disproportionately. In another report pub- 
lished in the St. Paul Dispatch recently, Harry 
piterman, noted tax consultant and who has made 
numerous research investigations into the state's 
finances, claims that the general fund for .Minne- 
sota is now 3& million dollars more in the red 
than it was a year and a half ago. 

It may be well to reduce the state's bonded 
\ indebtedness. But are our state funds being put 
more in the red in order to do it? Also are our 
smaller political subdivisions', such as our cities and 
counties, being deprived of state relief so that the 
financial conditions in these political subdivisions 
become so serious that in due time bankruptcies 
there will be the ultimate result? 

The question is: can the state reduce its bonded 
indebtedness and also deny aid to cities where relief 
funds are so necessary that the people will starve 
if such aid is not ibtained? In such a case the re- 
sult will be that a time will come when the state 
will have to appropriate much larger sums as an 
outright gift. 

To further befuddle the situation Gov. Stassen 
claimed in his message to the legislature that more 
tnan 60,000 unemployed have been put back to work 
in the larger industrial centers. If such is the case 
Minneapolis should find its, relief burden considerably 
less. But the Harris statement of the Mill City's 
financial predicament disapproves the governor's 
assertions a gocd deal. 

An explanation is needed.

Several Pennington county citizens have ap- 
proached us in recent weeks on the matter of our 
present courthouse and the condition in which it 
is in. The statement was made that the structure 
is a disgrace for the county and city alike and that 
a new one should be constructed. 

We are fully aware of the predicament the 
county board is finding itself. Some want tax reduc- 
tions while others want improvements that call for 
■ expenditures. Seme point oui, we will have a WPA 
payroll in spite of the national defense expenditures 
and that this could be devoted toward a new court- 

" The appropriation for WPA was cut considerably 
according to reports from Washington as congress 
opened. However, with most of the WPA projects 
Completed in this county and city, something must 
be sought to employ our employable needy next 
year or two. A WPA courthouse project, if obtain- 
able, should be the most important and logical one. 


We are now at that time of the year when a 
large portion of our people are more or less idle, 
something especially true of the rural population. 
As has been urged in these columns- in previous 
winter seasons, all who have the convenience should 
obtain some substantial reading matter that will 
serve to give the reader a broader view of life, I. e.. 
a greater amount of education. 

With- libraries available and willing to lend books 
to all, we see no reason why those who can should 
not seek to widen his or her scope of knowledge. 

In citing the value of reading we want to quote 


While the Rockwell ouster case is being con- 
ducted in St. Paul today, indications are that if 
injustice is being done the accused there is obtain- 
ing a great deal of support in his defense. The 
schoolmen of the state, as well as a national feder- 
ation of teachers, are the 'more prominent. In evalu- 
ating the case an editorial in the St. Paul Dispatch 
stated as follows: i - 

"Governor Stassen did well in suspending the 
Board of Education's so-called hearing on the dis- 
missal of Dr. Rockwell and ordering appointment of 
a referee, but he should not have stopped there. 
He should have thrown | it completely out of the 

"Friday's proceedings 'might have been suitable 
for a drum head court martial but ails is supposed 
to be an inquiry into certain specific charges that 
have been brought against the State Commissioner 
of Education. As far as the intimations ' of Commu- 
nism are concerned, if nothing more worthy in the 
name of evidence can be found to back them up. 
they had best be forgotten with as good a- grace 
as may be possible. 

"The State Board of Education has accused Dr. 
Rockwell with being inefficient and with actions 
inconsistent with the duties of his office. It is a 
striking fact that this same board, excepting one 
member, got along with Dr. Rockwell for two years 
before discovering these impediments to his use- 
fulness. The only new factor that has arisen is the 
Carstater dismissal. Mr. Carstater, however, has been 
vindicated by the Civil Service Board. How can Dr. 
Rockwell be guilty of improper conduct for having 
opposed the dismissal of a subordinate who was be- 
ing dismissed improperly? 

"This is an episode which adds nothing to the 
lustre of the state administration."

Marshall Road Show Stranded: 
Isolationists Don't Like Backers 

Veme Marshall, hitherto obscure 
Iowa publisher, and his No Foreign 
War Committee, made their ap- 
pearance In Washington last week 
accompanied by a blaze of front- 
page publicity. But the show is 
flopping badly. It is not living up 
to its advance notices. 

The isolationists were premature- 
ly elated Tyith this promise of. much 
needed help. They welcomed Mr. 
Marshall with outstretched arms. 
What could serve their cause bet- 
ter than |a fiery, crusading Mid- 
west editor riding on a white char- 
ger I i 

You can now jot it down- that 
Mr. Verne Marshall and his No 
Foreign 'War Committee are 
through— through" with the isola- 
tionists and everybody else who 
counts. Their only hope Is that, in 
their first [embrace, he. hasn't given 
them the kiss of death. 

Isolationists, whether you agree 
with them or not, in the main are 
loyal Americans. If they are play- 
ing the Hitlerygame, at least they 
are not dping.'it wittingly. Most of 
them, in fact, prefer a British to a 
Nazi victory, as, for example, Sen- 
ator Wheeler, who Is .pro-British at 
heart. And they don't like the pro- 
Nazi odors that emanate frcm Mr. 
Marshall and his No Foreign War 

Above ail, they want no connec- 
tions with! a movement sponsored 
by an oil ipromotor who became a 
millionaire through dealings with 

Messrs. Hitler, Gcerlng, Goebells, et 

When Mr. Marshall made his ap- 
pearance in the Nation's Capitol 
with the avowed purpose or putting 
William Allen White, the Commit- 
tee to Defend America by Aiding 
the yUlles, and all and sundry "in- 
tervenUonists and war-mongers" in 
their proper place, he quickly exe- 
cuted the following moves, all of 
which failed to click: 

He lunched with a group of Sen- 
ate isolationists, and succeeded in 
impressing them with the fact that 
he was not of their flesh and blood. 
They didn't like his actions. 

He called in the gentlemen of the 
press for a conference, in which he" 
"divulged" that a mysterious "peace 
offer" has been made by the Nazis 
after the subjugation of Poland, and 
inveiged against this country "giv- 
ing its defenses away to a foreign 
power." The trouble with the- for- 
mer was that the alleged "peace 
offer" did not come through the 
regular German diplomatic chan- 
nels but rather was conveyed thru 
"Oil Man" Davis, who, it developed 
in the course of the questioning/is 
the "angel" of Mr. Marshall's com- 
mittee — by "angel" meaning its fi- 
nancial backer to the tune of 
$100,000— and with the latter that 
in protesting against the policy o! 
"giving our defenses away" he gave 
the unmistakable impression that 
his fears were not so much con- 
cerned with the United States be- 
ing left defenseless against a pos- 
sible Nali attack as they were with 
giving Britain the necessary imple- 
ments of war with which to resist

body that all he had on the ball

Washington, D- 




The National Association of Manufacturers has 
been worried about "what; is in public school text- 
books. There has been an increasing fear, the man- 
ufacturers explain, that j"our high school students 
are not being given a fair and impartial presenta- 
tion of our form of government and the private 
enterprise system." In order to find out more, the 
N. A. M. hired Dr. Ralph West "Robey, assistant 
Professor of Banking at Columbia, journalist, one- 
time aide to Presidential candidate Alf M. Landon. 
Dr. Robey was to prepare abstracts of 600 social 
science texts. 

With a staff of assistants Dr. Robey went to 
work. Last week the results were about to toe made 
available to the public in a survey running to 500,000 
words and requiring about 1,200 pages. "The public 
will have a factual basis upon which to judge what, 
if anything, should be done," the N. A. M. state- 
ment read. Fourteen members of Harvard's faculty; 
asserted there was danger that the N. A. M. analysis 
had been made "with bias." 

Behind the N. A. Mi's interest in school books 
was presumed to be a controversy that for several 
years has beat about the head of Harold Rugg, Pro- 
fessor of Education at Teachers College, Columbia 
University, and a colleague of Dr. Robey's. Dr. Rugg, 
once a civil engineer, is author of many books, in- 
cluding "Introduction to American Civilization," 
"Changing Civilizations in 1 a Modern World," "Chang- 
ing Governments and Changing Cultures," and "The 
Social Science Pamphlets." Rugg textbooks have been 
used in the schools of about 5.000 American com- 

Other communities considered complaints against 
Dr. (Rugg and last year began to suppress his text- 
books. Blnghamton, N. Y.; banned them. A Bradncr, 
Ohio, school authority threw copies on a bonfire. 
The Mountain Lakes, <N. J„ school board, acting on 
an American Legion resolution, eliminated Rugg 
textbooks. Dr. Rugg contended that the attacks came 
from enemies of liberalism who were engaged in a 
"dangerous movement of witch-hunting." A group or 
his supporters, including New York educators, clergy- 
men and editors, insisted: "There must be no book- 
burnings in America."— 'New York Times.

It should be said at the very be- 
ginning that "Washington society" 
has never; been a decent cross-sec- 
tion of the American people. From 
the day old John Adams first mov- 
ed into the White House, the men 
and women whose names decorate 
the capital's "social register" have 
had precious little respect for de- 
mocratic ideals. They considered 
Thomas Jefferson "a traitor to his 
class" and sneered at Andrew Jack- 
son, as a 'Iboor." 

During the present depression 
they bitterly criticized the "New 
Deal" because It fed hungry Ameri- 
cans and i they applauded Hoover 
when he drove the "bonus march- 
ers" out of the capital at the point 
of the bayonet. 

Become a Little Silly 

But now! they have gone "goofy" 
over the titled refugees who have 
sufficient money or Influence to 
make their way across the Atlantic. 
A fair example was the reception 
accorded Princess Juliana of The 
Netherlands ■ when'' she visited 
Washington recently. She was al- 
most mobbed by the social elite 
whenever she appeared in public, 
and many of those privileged to 
touch her hand acted as thougr 
they had never heard of the Dec- 
laration of Independence. 

To a lesser degree the other ti- 
tled refugees are being kowtowed 
to in sftniitir fashion. 

The New York "Herald-Tribune" 
declares that the work of "extend- 
ing relief to the world's war-har- 
rassed peoples" has assumed the 
proportions of an "industry." It has 
tabulated 295 organizations with 
1,500,000 active members, all solic- 
iting . money, clothing, food and 
other materials. Supervising this 
immense movement are well-paid 
staffs running into the hundreds. 
Forget the Poor at Home 

Apparently there is no limit to 
what these people are willing to do 
for sufferers in other lands, but 
they remain indifferent to the con- 
dition of their own flesh and blood 
right here at home. 

The same effort on behalf of our 
own needy .would go a long way to- 
ward rendering government help 

While we are on the subject, it 
might be well to point out that the 
business of getting refugees into 
this country has become a good deal 
of a "racket." Just a few days ago 
the State Department announced 
with a great flourish of trumpets 
that the bars had been let down so 
that 2,000 might come in, and those 
in touch with the situation said 
that at least 600,000 were clamor- 
ing in American consular offices 
abroad for the privilege of coming 
over. j 

"They Had the Money" 

Undoubtedly, among ^these 2,000 
there are ; numerous worthy cases. 
On the other hand, it seems to be 
generally conceded that many got 
their names on the lists "because 
they had the money." 

The great mass of Hitler's victims 
are without funds. They must re- 
main in their native lands, starv- 
ing and slaving under the whip of 
the totalitarian dictators. 

Those who are coining across, in 
the main, 1 are the very rich and 
those who' belong to "great fami- 
lies." | 

All have sustained heavy finan- 
cial losses; but in hundreds of in- 
stances they succeeded in carrying 
away gold, jewels and gilt-edged 
securities, or had reserves in banks 
on this side of the Atlantic. 

It will be recalled - that one of 
the Rothschilds came into New 
York with his wife and revealed 
that among their possessions was 
$1,000,000 in precious stones. 

Because ; these people "have the 
money," they are in a position to 
hire lobbyists who will labor with 
the State Department in their be- 
half. They| are willine to pay hand- 
some fees; for such services, and 
apparently^ they are not worrying 

very much about what happens to 
their fellow countrymen who are 
compelled to remain at home. 

It would be very enlightening if 
congress were to secure from the 
State Department the list of the 
2,000 refugees who are about to be 
admitted with brief comment on 
each individual, his connections and 
his financial resources. 

"World's Prize Suckers" 

This would enable the American 
people to get some extremely in- 
teresting information concerning 
the way this particular phase cf 
the refugee problem is being hand- 
led, and the character of the men 
and women who are being admit- 

Above all, it is time for the Am- 
erican people to get a grip on their 
emotions. If thsy don't they will 
wake up some day to find they have 
been played for the world's prize 

The first task of a nation, as of 
an. individual, is to take care of* its 
own. Millions of. our own people 
are still without adeouate food, 
clothing and housing, "until they 
are provided for, we should place 
a check on our efforts to relieve 
unfortunates in other lands. 
Don't Favor the Rich 

Our immigration laws were en- 
acted after years of struggle. They 
should not be relaxed in favor of 
the rich and powerful who have 
the gold with which to hire per- 
suasive special pleaders. 

Finally, it might be a gcr>d idea 
to recall occasionally that there 
was a time when Americans cheer- 
ed whenever they heard that a 
throne had toppled in Europe and 
that much of Europe's troubles are 
traceable to the fact that klnzs and 
queens and nobles performed so 
wretchedly, and warred among 
themselves so incessantly, that they 
paved the way for the frightful 
"isms" which are now submerging 
human rights throughout the Old 

was a lot of crust. 

So '. exeunt Mr. Verne Marshall 
and his No Foreign War Commit- : 
tee. The fuse to his time bomb will 
continue to sputter for a while, but 
the bomb itself will never explode. 
It is a dud. Now and then he will 
make the front page headlines —

the connections of his committee

who want to keep America out of

Rcuther Plan Studied 

Convinced that mere is seme 
merit to the so-called Reuther plan 
to utilize, idle space in the autcmo- 
ble plants for the mass production 
of warplanes (Mr, Reuther estim- 
ates that the plan, after six months, 
can turn out 500 planes daily) the 
Administration has undertaken a 
study of its feasibility. 

The plan is receiving consider- 
able support frcm liberals on Capi- 
tol Hill, who feel that the automo- 
tive industry is the logical place 
for airplane mass production rather 
than the airplane Industry, organ-' 
ized to do the work more on a "cus- 
toms-made" basis. Automobile in- 
dustrialists, however, are opposed 
to it, largely because it doesn't fit 
into their conception of, what con- 
stitutes "good business." Also — and 
this is true of industrialists gener- 
ally—they don't like the idea of 
labor originating the plan. Many 
of them feel that placing all the 
idle automotive facilities in a large 
jack-pot, so to speak, is a stepping 
stone to government operation o. r 
industry and collectivism. 

There is no indication of enthu- 
siasm for the plan as yet ccmln^' 
frcm the defense commission. Whe- 
ther Knudsen, -who is a large auto- 
mobile industrialist himself, shares 
the views of his fellow automobile 
industrialists is not known. 

The airplane industry, as was to 
be expected, is very hostile to the 
plan, but is hardly in a. position to 
say much. They are letting others 
do their talking. They are not pre- 
pared for such competition either 
now or 'after the emergency is ot-

In "Protecting Your Dollars" the 
various events leading to federal 
regulation of securities are review- 
ed, including the 1929 maTket pan- 
ic and the activities of investment 
bankers and stock market opera- 
tors as revealed in "the sensational 
■Pecora hearings. This is followed 
by a brief discussion of the organ- 
ization of the S. E. C. In the re- 
maining chapters there is a de- 
tailed account of the S. E. C'.'s 
work in running dewn stcck swind- 
lers, preventiH5 manipulation of

ganization of the New York Stoct 
Exchange, the clean up of Detroit 
and the recent case involving cor- 
rupt political practices of an im- 
portant utility company are some 
of the matters covered. Two im- 
portant chapters deal with the in-

SEC is taking to prevent continued 
abuses by these giant corporations.

Opposes Lowering Draft Ago 

j Jan. 9, 1941 

Editor Forum: - 

The war minded group regard- 
less of uaTty ;are out to rob the 
cradle to" produce soldiers for the 
gathering war clouds. They are 
trying to create public opinion to 
take our 18 to 21 year old "boys" 
and push them into the trenches 
for cannon fodder. The present age 
limit of 21 is young enough under 
present conditions. 

Mothers and fathers everywhere 
in our country should arise as one 
unit, organize, petition and write 
their congressmen and senators to 
fight this movement with all the 
power at their command. At the 
age of 18 these "boys" are still in 
their teens, Home Boys attending 
school or college, and should not 
be robbed of their birthright in a 
civilized country to prepare for a 
worthy citizenship in one of the 
most enlightened and progressive 
nations in the world. 

These "boys" are not prepared 
to be thrown into these war camps. 
They are too young and not phys- 
ically matured to be pushed into 
this whirl-gig of confusion and de- 
gradation, regardless of what poli- 
ticians and war-minded professors 
may declare or decree. 

If Americans wish to save and 
preserve America for Americans; 
they must today step up and pro- 
tect family ties— the family circle 
— before it is too ate. The under- 
mining of the public morale of our 
boys" must be clipped hi/the mak- 
ing—if the souls and the spirit of 
freedom, freedom and 7, Christianity 
— shall survive in America.

Where is/it wise to cut costs in

Replacement Big Factor 
There is- one general principle . 
that can be set down here, how- 
ever. Briefly, it is this. Any part 
of your house that it is not practi- 
cal-to replace should have the best 
in construction and materials. By 
this, we mean such items as foot- 
ings and foundation, timber skele- 
ton and frame work, windows and 
window frames, which are really 
part of the house frame, concealed 
ducts and wiring. . All these things 
must last the life of the house. 
Wiser to Wait 
It is wiser to wait for some -of 
the attractive furnishings and fix- 
tures until more money is avail- 
able, rather than to skimp on

the result of skimping on size of

Lake Benton Man Kills 
Girl, In Jealous Rage 

A Redwcod : county coroner's jury 
Tuesday returned a verdict charg- 
ing Everett Johnson; 28, Lake Ben- 
ton farmhand, with the "premedi- 
tated" slaying* of'- his former .girl 
friend, shot , down late Monday in 
the front yard of the farm home 
where she worked. 

The verdict, said- County Attorney 
Thomas Reed, Jr., alleged that Gale 
Wendorff, the pretty 20-year-old 
victim, died from a bullet fired from 
a .22 calibre revolver "feloniously 
and with premeditation at the 
hands of Everett Johnson." 

Sheriff L.J. Else said that John- 
son, questioned at length in the 
county jail ! at Redwood Falls on 
Tuesday, denied he shot the girl 
intentionally. He asserted, accord- 
ing to Kise, that he threatened 
suicide and that as the girl grab- 
bed his arm, the revolver was dis- 
charged, the bullet striking her in 
the head. : 

The sheriff quoted Johnson as 
saying that he and Miss Wendorff 
had been close friends for about 
three years! but that she quit .him 
New Years day and he had "wor- 
ried about lit" since. 

Another outstanding movie of 
the season will be seen next Sun- 
day and Monday at the Avalon 
Theatre. It is the film "A Dispatch 
From Reuters" in which Edward 
G. Robinson plays one of the most 
important roles in his career. 

Telling the thrilling life story of 
Julius Reuter, [founder and origin- 
ator of the first world-wide news 
gathering and news disseminating 
system, Robinson is cast as Reu- 
ter, and the roster of supporting 
players include such- notables as 
Edna . Best, Eddie Albert, Albert 
Basserman. and;.Gene ; Lockhart. . 

The story begins back in the 
early- nineteenth century in Ger- 
many, where a young lad named 
Reuter Is working in a bank as a 
messenger boy. Aware of the delay 
and uncertainty of the mails and 
market reports, from the larger 
European centers, he dreams of 
finding some way to expedite such 

His first venture in- this direc- 
tion is a carrier pigeon post for 
carrying messages between Aix-La- 
Chappelle and Verviers. It is dur- 
ing this venture that he meets and 
marries Ida Magnus (played by Ed- 
na Best). 

But meanwhile the communica- 
tions field is being revolutionized 
by the telegraph, and Reuter's 
winger messengers are no longer 
needed. Now is the time "to launch 
his scheme for a large-scale news 
service. He goes to Paris, but is 
unsuccessful there. In 1851, he goes 
to England and becomes a British 

It is several years later when he 
gets his big chance. He ties up the 
English channel cable line, makes 
arrangements in Paris to have one 
of Napoleon's most important spee- 
ches relayed word for word by tele- 
graph, while It is being delivered. 
He furnishes spot copies to all Lon- 
don newspapers, and his success is 

Out of these true to life events, 
a thrilling, human story has been 
woven, combining all the basic In- 
gredients of a great man's life — 
struggle,, defeat and eventual tri- 
umph— into a truly fine film.

Tracks Down Tuberculosis 

Results of a District Wide Survey i 

From "Everybody's Health," official 

publication of the Minnesota Public 

Health Association 

One of the most thorough and 
inclusive tuberculin testing pro- 
grams ever conducted in this state 
has just been completed at Oakland 
Park Sanatorium, Thief River Falls. 
The four counties which, make up 
this sanatorium district were in- 
cluded: Red Lake, Pennington, Ro- 
seau, and Marshall, with a total ol 
11.579 tests having been given tj 
both adults and children. Such 
widespread tuberculin i testing is 
important in respecc to: the end re- 
sults obtained. The testing is a 
means. The end is discovery of 
active tuberculosis, with temporary 
isolaticn of infected persons from 
the community until such a time

normal environment. I 

This end purpose has been well 
executed in the Oakland Park pro- 
ject by the sanatorium's farseeing 
and progressive superintendent. Dr. 
Baldwin Bcrreson, witli the assist- 
ance of his efficient jfield nurse, 
Margaret Hesiburg. AH: positive re- 
actors to the test were X-rayed. 
Those shewing indications of dis- 
ease by this means mere further 
examined clinically. As I a result, 18 
cases of active, progressive tuber- 
culosis were uncovered by this pro- 
ject. This is no mean] reward for 
the expense and time consumed. 
Eighteen people, whose disease may 
have progressed to the jfar-advanc- 
ed consumptive stage were discov- 
ered in time. Eighteen I people who 
definitely threatened tlie health of 
those with whom they came in con- 
tact are being properly treated, S3 
that additional infections to others 
cannot take place. | 

Others who shewed suspicious 
shadows on X-ray, indicating lung 
damage frcrh some rause have be- 
come intelligently aware of thttr 
border-line condition as a result of 
this survey. To toe aware of a pos- 
sible danger in most cases means 
avoiding it. How many cases of 
tuberculosis have been actually 
prevented by this project is one of 
the intangible values of the under- 
taking upon which there can be 
only speculation. But intangible 
values are none the less real be- 
cause they defy measurement. 

The results of this tuberculosis 
case-finding program are so far- 
reaching that a brief study of how 
the project was conducted twill be 
in order. j 

But before we can ! understand 
how it was performed; we should 
knew vhere the program took 

Oakland Park Sanatorium is one 
'of the later county sanatoria, hav- 
ing been opened in 1918. At that 
time there was only one building, 
with a bed capacity of 32 patients. 
The addition of the nurses' home 
in 1922, an addition to the main 
building in 1926, and the most re- 
cent addition of 15 beds in 1939 
brings the sanatorium to its pres- 
ent appearance and capacity. There 
is rocm for 65 patients.' 

The most recent addition, cpened 
for patients last December, also 
houses new laboratories, an X-ray 
room, personnel offices, laundry, 
and dining room for hurses and 
employees. , i 

The buildings are well kept and 
homey. The beauty of| the sana- 
torium, however, is immeasurably 
increased by the 22 acres of trees, 
clcsely -clipped lawn and gardens 
which surround it. Located a mile 
and a quarter from Thief River 
.rails in Pennington County, the 
sanatorium is built in' a section 
once called Oakland Park Addition, 
a suburb to the city. This location 
was selected by Dr. Robinson Bos- 
worth, of the State Sanatorium 
Commission, and Dr. O. 1 J. Mellby, 
of Thief River Falls, whb has serv- 
ed as .president of the sanatorium 
commission since 1919. Much of the 
credit for the founding and devel- 
opment of the institution is owing 
to : Dr. Mellby's efforts, backed by 
the cooperation of his fellow com- 
missioners at that time and since. 

Each cf the four counties afe 
represented on the Sanatorium 
Beard, which numbers nine mem- 
bers. The current board, under Dr. 
Mellby, is composed of Dr.- H. M. 
Blegen, vice president, Warren; Al- 
fred Bredeson, Thief "River Falls; 
Dr. J.:A. Roy, Red-Lake: Falls; Ole 
p. Lee, Oklee; T. B. Folden, Holt; 
O, K. Chrlstianson, Greenbush- o 
Gunstad, St. Hilaire, and]M. J. Heg- 
land, from Roseau. ''.■'■■ 

The institution serves' a district 
which, at one time, had a very hi<?h 
tuberculosis death rate, ireaching'a 
peak '.of- 171.67 Vi Pennington In 
1910. Since the middle twenties this 
rate has taken a spectacular drop "'

testing- schedule with the survey 
being conducted in the fall of 1337. 
A total of 3,336 tests .were given. 
Primarily, the cbject was to test 
school children. Hcwever, the many 
adults who requested the test were 
not discouraged. 

The children whose parents ne- 
glected to give their consent for 
the test represents the huge ques- 
tion mark which always : enters in 
to disturb the conclusions of such 
a survey. The question taunts one: 
were the 10^ who failed jto receive 
the test the ones who mest should 
have been tested? Was it ! fear that 
hidden tuberculosis in the family 
would be brought to medical atten- 
tion, that restrained these parents? 
In some events, then, is| a matter 
definitely requiring continuous edu- 
cation. : 

Long before testing began in Ro- 
seau county. Miss Hessburg planned 
with the superintendent an inten- 
sive county-wide educational pro- 

Margarct Hessbnrff, Field Nurse 

gram. Talks were givenu throughout 
the county. Literaturb jfrom the 
Minnesota Public" Health" Associa- 
tion was distributed. Then the re- 
quest cards for the test 1 were given 
to school children to be signed 'by 
their parents. With this, | they car- 
ried home the Christmas Seal pam- 
phlet, "What is the Mantoux Test?" 

Because the task of testing at 100 
rural schools and 9- town schools 
was formidable, units in larger 
towns were set up. Through school 
bulletins and town papers the gen- 
eral public as .well as teachers were 
informed as to dates' and place 
where they should bring the child- 
ren. The response was good. 

As a result of the educational 
campaign, aH positive! -reactors knew 
that they were to have an X-ray 
to complete the tes6..The trans- 
portation to the sanatorium (was 
made possible by school j busses. 

The success ol the survey which 
involved the taking of 457 X-rays, 
is unquestioned, botli from an edu- 
cational viwepoint, and! the fact 
that eight cases of active tubercu- 
losis .were discovered in this county . 
alone. Christmas Seal funds were 
used here as in the other counties 
to finance the X-rays taken of the 

Testing in the other counties took 
place as follows: Marshall, in the 
spring, of 1939; Red Lake, during 
the next fall; and Pennington last 
spring. j 

Six months preceding the begin- 
ning of testing in Marshall county, 
the Red Cross and Christmas Seal 
organizations there conceived the 
idea of conducting a testing survey 
in the schools of the county. Feel- 
ing that the logical authority to 
conduct such a program } was the 
sanatorium, these organizations Dis- 
cussed the matter with -Dr. Bor- 
reson. As the Roseau county survey 
was still under way, the plan was 
dropped until spring. Then the 
sanatorium submitted to the asso- 
ciations a suggested program, 
which was approved, and! the sur- 
vey proceeded as a cooperative ven- 
ture. Education, us in the Roseau 
program, was the pivot about which 
the survey revqlved. All newspapers 
editors were personally called upon. 
The county superintendent of 
schools, town superintendent, and 
teachers gave their whole hearted 
support. The problem of informing 
the rural areas was solved by the 
highly advantageous meeting of 
rural teachers at their annual in- 
stitute. Dr. Borreson spoke at this 
meeting. He explained to the teach- 
ers the work he was about to do, 
and how impoftaxit their 'coopera- 
tion, would be." .■ ! 

The testing .was begun March Gth 
and ended May 20. During this time 
3.8S1 Mantoux tests Vere given, with 
523 reacting positively. 'Of these 142 
were adults. .The almost unprece- 
dented turnout .of teachers to be 
tested -showed a remarkable devel- 
opment of tuberculosis education in 
that region. Fifty-two teachers re- 
ceived the test. Eight persons, as 
In Roseau, were found to have a 

clinically active infection of tuber- 

The response of the parents was 
as good as that of the teachers. 

A teachers' institute proved to 
be a timely advantage in the Red 
Lake county survey also. As a re- 
sult of the talk given at this meet- 
ing, every rural teacher in the 
county had the Mantoux test and 
those positive followed with an X- 
ray examination. It was ' apparent 
that the teachers appreciated the 
value of the survey as they exerted 
every effort to have all pupils in 
their schools tested. Adults in the 
community also responded. One ad- 
ult, discovered to have active in- 
fection, entered the sanatorium 
shortly afterwards as a patient. 
The childhood or primary infections 
discovered will be followed up by 
a home visit from Miss Hessburg. 

In this survey, 2,054 tests were 
given, with 124 positive reactions 
and one active case uncovered. Ob- 
viously, the incidence of Infection 
is not so high In Red Lake as in 
the other two counties. 

A similar situation was found in 
the survey in Pennington county, 
where about the same number were 
tested, and 216 responded positively 
with one active case being found. 

The tremendqus task of tubercu- 
lin testing residents of four coun- 
ties is finally completed, 'after three 
years. But the follow-up of this 
survey will call for continuous ef- 
fort over many years. 

Dr. Borreson and Miss Hessburg 
have performed an exceptional ser- 
vice to their district. With them 
those teachers, parents, newspaper 
men, school superintendents, clergy, 
and others who cooperated to make 
the survey a success, must be com- 
mended. In this exceptional piece 
of case-finding work, the Minneso- 
ta (Public Health Association ^ 
proud to have had a part, through 
the -work of its affiliated county' 
associations who "applied their 
Christmas Seal funds "to this pro- 

South St. jPaul, iMrnn., Jan. 14, 
1941: Rapidly mounting hog prices 
sent the top to $8.10, a new peak 
since September 1939. Lighter re- 
ceipts than normal for this period 
of the year and continued broad 
demand kept values surging up- 
ward, according to the Federal- 
State Market News Service, and' 
accumulative gains for the week to 
date totaled 50-60C. Bulk good and 
choice 180-270 lb. barrows and gilts 
cashed at $8.00-8.10, while weights 
up to 330 lb. ranged downward to 
$7.70, and extreme heavies occas- 
ionally sold at $7.50. Most 140-160 
lb. kinds commanded $7.50-8.00, 
while 160-180 lb. weights moved at 
$7.90-8.10. Good sows sold within 
a $6.80-7.00 range and feeder pigs' 
were scarce, clearing mainly at 
$7.25, with a few strongweights up 
to $7.50. 

Slaughter steers and she stock 
were active and stronger, during the 
first two days of the week and gains 
measured generally 25c. Choice 1112 
lb', steers brought $14.35 Tuesday to 
establish a new top in more than 
three years. The entire steer crop 
is at a new high for the season, 
although bulk of the offerings here 
consisted of medium to good kinds 
at $9.00-11.50. Medium heifers bulk- 
ed at $7.00-9.00, but choice offer- 
ings brought $10.90 Monday. Com- 
mon and medium cows sold at 
£6.00-6.75, with good cews at $7.00- 
8.00, and canners and cutters at 
$4.50-5.75. Bulls worked counter to 
the general trend, selling off 25c 
in extremes. Medium sausage kinds 
brought $6.75-755. Vealers were 
generally $1.00 higher, a lew strict- 
ly choice reaching $12.50. Stockers. 
and feeders advanced 25c, choice' 
finishing steers making $11.00, and 
choice feeders sold at $10.00-10.50. 

Additional price strength: around 
25c was noted Monday for led lambs 
and yearlings, with the ensuing 
session maintaining this advance. 
Fed slaughter ewes, largely •western 
shipments, scored a 50c upturn. 
Feeding and shearing classes re- 
sponded with a sympathetic rise of

Grind At Capitol 

(Continued from Front Page) 

$1,200,000 for old age assistance was 

^introduced in the house by Rep. 

Claude Allen, St. Paul, chairman of 

the appropriations committee. 

According to a report today, a 
surprise move was taken by the 
house late yesterday when the $1.- 
200.000 old age pension deficiency 
bill was passed without a dissent- 
ing vote. It will now go before the 
senate where similar action is an- 

The bill is unusual in that, as 
Rep. Geo. Hagen of Crookston said, 
because Gov. Stassen In his mes- 
sage, asserted the state government 
was operating on a balanced bud- 

. Re-enactment of the four-cent 
gasoline tax in Minnesota and the 
abolition and reoeal of the one-mill 
Dunn law for highway purposes 
was asked in a resolution introduc- 
ed in the house by Ray Antila of 

A puny squeak Tuesday started 
what, may become the noisiest 
squabble of the current !r~islative 
session. The squeak was in the form 
of a routine announcement show- 
ing proposed reapportionment o' 
the state to drastically cut '.he size 
of the legislature. 

The plan, announced by Senator 
Tfarry Wing's sub-committee, con- 
form? to Senator Val Imm's pro- 
posal that the house be reduced 
from 131 to R8 members and the 
senate from 67 to 44. The outline 
will be basis of a bill to be pre- 
sented shortly. 

In this setup it is proposed that 
Pennington. Red Lake, ' Marshall.. 
Roseau and Kiti?on counties com- 
i,ris? one legislative district. Polk. 
Norman and Mahnomen counties 
will comprise another. 

Change in the state drivers' lic- 
ense l?.w to provide compulsory ex- 
aminations based on applicant's 
ability to drive, physical condition 
and vision, was recommended to 
the legislature by the Minnesota 
safety council. 

The legislature also was asked to 
study drunken driving sentences 
and license revocations with a view 
to making oractice more uniform 
throughout the state, to increase 
personnel of the highway patrol.and 
extend its operations to all gas tax 

Married women whose husbands 
are earning adequate salaries would 
be prohibited from being on the 
citv. county or state payrolls under 
a bill sponsored in the house of 
representatives by Rep. Schulz and 
Bibbons. both of St. Paul. Schulz 
declared that one of the greatest 
causes of child delinquency is the 
fact that women are not at home 
taking care of their children. 

Under Schulz's measure, no mar- 
ried D3r=on whose spouse is em- 
ployed by the state. -county, city, 
village or school district- and re- 
ceiving an average income exceed- 
ing $150 a month would be permit- 
ted on the public .payroll. 

mention tREA in his. message, 
prompted. Emll Morberg of (Marsh- 
all county to-make this ^statement 
to the Press: "Has the Governor's 
associa.lqn with Commonwealth & 
Southern WUlkie caused him to 
forget entirely the REA and other 
Rural Cooperatives?" 

Homestead Lien Law 

It appears to me that public 
resentment and active opposition 
to the Hen Law passed under Gov. 
Stassen in 1939 is bearing fruit. In 
his inaugural speech he was forced 
to recommend that j the . law- be 
changed so that: "Where children 
can show to the tprobate court that 
either they were unable to hem 
their parents, or that: they did all 
they reasonably could to help them, 
that j then the Lien could be en- 
tirely waived by the probate court." 
This | 'practically brings us back to 
the law as it was 'before being tam- 
pered with In the '39 session. Rep. 
Rollin Johnson, Conservative Ad- 
ministration spokesman in the 
House, was quoted in the news- 
paper as paying: "that sounds to 
me like back-door repeal." Liberals 
can be well satisfied at the, effect 
of their -work, but should not rest 
on tv."ir .laurels now! Watch this 
legislation concerning cur old peo- 

Saltv; Tax and Other Taxes 

Tho^ of us who have actively 
tooosed -any move to .'foist a Sales 
Tax [on your people "In our State 
are preparing to fight again against 
=uchja proposal. Senator Weber of 
Slavton, Administration supporter. 
is introducing a KJ- sales tax pro- 
oosal, which would hit - rich and 
noorjwith the same impact, altho 
f-he !ooor will suffer; much more 
tlmn! those able to pay. 

No; mention was made in the In- 
^usural address concerning the 
tremendous reductions in Iron Ore 
valuations ordered on the Iron 
Rnn«e toy Gov. Stassen's Tax Com- 
missioner. Neither was the. rural 
Minnesota demand for return of 
the 4o Gas Tax re'ferred to, altho 
we shall watch closely the Gover- 
nor's treatment of these two sub-, 
iects in his Budget and Tax ad- 
dress this week. 
What Of Banality Of 

Educational Opportunities 

Rumons around the Capitol have 
been; strong to the effect that an 
effort will be made in this session 
to lower the school's share of In- 
come Tax monies. Plans are being 
made to provide legislation which 
would reallocate twenty ' mer cent 
of the money derived from" the In- 
come Tax back to the county from 
whence- It came, for other than edu- 
cational purposes. The rural areas 
of -'the state would (be denied thelr 
fair share x)f the tax income from 
the Iwealthier individuals of the 
metropolitan centers of this State. 
Insofar .as these .people are pros- 
perous because of the' agricultural 
areas surrounding the large cities, 
this does not seem to me to give 
the .farming communities of this 
state a fair break.

A little later in the season a tour-

all the boys who are coming out 
for practice to play on a team. This 
will mean that each school will have

place, with six wins and seven loss- 
es. The Fargo Comets have three 
wins and eleven losses, one win be-

campaign nlrl^es for trulv sane 

and sensible liberal principles I 
could not vote for Representative 
Lawrence Hall on the basis of his 
rjast- voting record. Back in the 
1935 Session he voted for the Om- 
nibus Tax Bill which included a 
provision for a Sales Tax. He voted 
against adequate increases in the 
Income and Money and Credits 

In his inaugural address the 
Governor stressed the Importance 
of Agriculture, stating that the 
welfare of the farmer affects not 
onlv the farmer but "indirectly— 
everyone within the state." Agree- 
ing with this we opposed Rep. Hall 
who voted against a tax on chain

St, Paul wants you for these events — the annual Winter

lor the Carnival since its revival four years ago as this year. 
Even |if you've been a party to this frolic in the past you'll 
bejamazed at the "bigger and better" improvements planned 
for this year. 

As you all know, the big day of the Carnival is the open- 
ing Saturday, February 1, when the main parade of the week 
takes place in the afternoon. This is the day when the loyal 
legions of King Boreas take over the city, welcoming visitors 
to join with them in the fun. 

But the fun goes on all week. There will be parades 
every night, with musical festivals, dancing, coronations and 
whatnot to provide entertainment virtually every minute .of. 
the time. 

; More .than that, the competitive sports angle will not 
be overlooked. Skating races, ski jumping contests, dog- 
sled races, etc., will provide competition, and toboggan- 
ing, skating and skiing will provide the less formal

East Siders Play 

Prowlers Friday Eve 

(Continued from Paso One) 
In the third period and went into 
the lead 14-10 as the Prowlers were, 
held scoreless. 

But the: Prowlers took the offense 
In the last quarter and crept up 
Within ajpointof. the Pirate lead 
as the end nekred. With the score 
23-22 against them, - three Prowler 
free- throws went for naught in the 
last three minutes. 

The Crookston fans went wild as 
the Pirates maintained the lead 
and the roar and tumult of the 
crowd undoubtedly were in part to 
blame for the failure of the local 
boys to count on these gift shot 
attempts. Both teams were off in 
this department throughout the en- 
tire game but the Lindymen missed 
the greater number of them. 

Flasch played a good game but 
was well covered. Berg and Parbst 
were the top scorers for the Lindy- 
men, the former registering eight 
points and the latter five. Morlan 
was the Pirate star, his guarding 
being outstanding. A Pirate for- 
ward, Bakken, was high point man 
of the game, getting 9 points. 

The Prowler Reserves were given 
a 37-7 setback' in the preliminary 
game, the local boys being unable 
,to connect for a field goal in the 
entire game, playing 5 minute per- 
iods. The alibi was that this was 
the Reserves first trip out of town 
this winter so they were lost on a 
foreign floor, and the background 
of the baskets was different from 
the ordinary. ■

East Grand Forks had to bite the 
dust for the Ponies at Warren on 
Friday- night as Coach' Lysaker's 
boys took the East Siders into 
•camp 24-15. The Green Wave ear- 
lier won from the Ponies 21-20 at 
East Grand Forks. 

To complicate matters among the 
four big schools of this district, it 
will be Interesting to note that the 
East Siders have already defeated 
the Pirates who won over the Prow- 
lers Friday. This should make the'

Pirate Players Deserve 
Medals For Victory 

Fred O'Niel of the Grand Forks 
Herald had the following to say 
of the Prowler-Pirate game of last 


"Someone should cast a row of 
medals and present one each, to 
those Crookston high school bas- 
ketball players who finally showed 
District 31 fans that Thief River 
Falls can toe beaten by teams in 
this district. At Crookston they say 
% had been six years since a Crook- 
sion team had won over Thief Riv- 
er Falls in a major sport. It must 
be about that length of time, too, 
sincti either Warren or East Grand 
Forks turned the trick. That's quite 
a spell for one team to dominate a 
distriot so completely. Not that the 
Prowlers might not continue their 
usual tactics when the district cage 
tournament is held. But Crookston's 
victory over Thief Jliver Falls, East 
Grand Forks' win and loss in the 
Warren series and the Green 
Wave's triumph over Crookston in- 
dicate at least that there is more 
balance in District 31 this season 
than there has been since before 
the days of George Lee's great 
Prowler outfits (using the decade 
or double leap-year calendar)."

iclub 'I champion?, toy* winning the 
coveted' New-Year's cirp match last 
Sunday by defeating his closest 
rival, Orlando M. Bishop, by two 
points. This was the fourteenth an- 
nual shooting of this match, which 
consists of ten shots in each of the 
four positions, prone, sitting, kneel- 
ing and standing. The Cup has been 
held by- George Baken, Roy L. Er-

With Miss Lucille Thomas guid- 
ing the handicraft ' efforts of a 
number of children, this new part 
of the program is very successful. 
Many novel ideas are brought into 
the handicraft classes by children. 
These ideas .turn into things of 
material value after a little work. 

Toboganning, basketball, skating, 
hockey, various games in the arena 
upstairs are a few of the activities 
made available by local recreation 
officials. Let's have more partici- 
pation and keep the recreation

Ban On Fish Spearing 
Lifted By Commissioner 

Revoking the ban on winter spear- 
ing -for pickeral or northern pike, 
Conservation Commissioner W. L. 
Strunk on Wednesday reduced the 
fcaily catch and possession limits. 

The dailv limit, which applies to 
angling,- will be reduced to six. be- 
ginning 30 days from the date of 
the order's legal publication. The 
possession limit will be 12 fish. The 
former limit was eight .pickerel 
dally, with 20 In possession. 

The order forbidding spearing of 
pickeral this winter had aroused 
widespread opposition and the rev- 
ocation was announced after the 
commissioner had numerous confer-, 
ences with members of the state 

The order reopenlne the winter 
spearing season- is effective-at once, 
until. March 1, with a 4.aily take 
limit of two fish. Possession limits the same as for angling. "_i

An event of considerable interest to Midwestern farms occurred in Chicago recently when a 
banquet was given by the DeKalb Agricultural Association in honor of Dr. George Harrison 
Shull, who discovered the science of hybrid corn breeding in a series of experiments beginning 
in 1905. Above, R. R. St. John, outstanding hybrid corn breeder, gives Dr. Shull a medal struck 
in commemoration of the occasion. An interested onlooker is Gov. Lloyd Stark of Missouri, one 
of the many leading agriculturists who paid tribute to Dr. Shull. 

Stanley Suchy and his granddaughter Carol Ann Suchy believe 
in enjoying winter sports to the fullest extent. Carol Ann evi- 
dently enjoys the sport more than her grandfather as she and 
her dog seem to be very comfortably situated.

We had a very dear Scotch friend 
■who frequently used to., be- our 
guest on New Tear's Bay, but this V 
friend never : came :to' us without .: 
bringing a gift of friendship, usu- . .- j 
ally in the form of a~ shortbread. . 
She told us that In Scotland it was ! 
Che custom to begin the New Year

Perhaps it would not be feasible 
for us in this country to go calling., 
upon all of our- friends, laden down

. ~ 'can contribute much to each/other 

if we will but share our cooking ' 
s-v,_ secrets. It is these, secrete which 
' -"help to make good; cooks. ;-.. 

* -Contrary to popular ^belief, cooks 
are'not born— they-are made! Any- ;. 
one can be a successful cook if she ■ ' . 
wUT follow a/ few" simple rules. , 
Prohably the flxst rule would be-to 
use' a recipe that has been tried 
and tested. The next rule; would 
most certainly be to use only high 
quality products— products that can 
bclrelied upon to secure the .results

^rVtlh the recipe and materials on 
~i hand, the next matter for, consid-

;*^ Ingot aU ingredients. This requires 
proper equipment, m e a s.u r In g 
spoons, measuring cups, spatulas, 
mixing bowls, etc All *easur£ 
mente must be level-rthat this, 
means scraping spoons and; cups 
off with knife or spatula to insure 
this. It probably means that the 
cook should have not only a glass 
measuring cup, through which .she . 
can see' for liquids, hut a set of- - 
graduated measuring cups to use y. 
lor exact measurement of sugaf, -

use in sifting flour-back and forth 
a number of times. t ; ,_ 

With Ingredients carefully mea-

The Pennington County Agricul- 
tural Conservation committee has 
announced that it is scheduling for 
next week a series of community 
meetings to familiarize farmers 
with the 1941 Agricultural Conser- 
vation program and other current 
policies which will be of interest 
to the farmers. Carl R. Anderson, 
chairman of the county committee, 
said there were several minor 
changes in the 1941 Conservation 
ProgTam that farmers will want to 
learn about. 

The County Committee also re- 
minds farmers that there still is 
an opportunity for them to order 
phosphate fertilizer through the 
Grant of Aid program. Individual 
orders are pooled in the county 
office until such a time as enough 
orders accumulate for one carload 
of phosphate fertilizer. At these 
series of meetings the use of phos- 
phate will also be discussed. 

Farmers are urged to be present 
at whatever meeting place would 
be most convenient for them to 
attend.. The meetings will be held 
at 1:00 p. m. each day at the fol- 
lowing places:

Legislative Report 

By Liberal Received 

The Forum is herewith inserting 
its second report of the legislative ' 
session in 1st. Paul. These reports 
ill henceforth be written by Har- 
old Peterson, secretary of the Far- 
mer-Labor association. His report 

Already in this 90-day session we 
have seen eleven legislative days go 
by,- up through Saturday, Jan. IB. 
Altho the legislative mill grinds 
slowly, especially at first, we do 
not yet have any evidence that It 
grinds exceedingly fine, legislatively 
speaking. TJp to 'this time 54 bills 
have been introduced in the House, 
and 59 in the Senate. 
Reapportionment And Reduction 
In the Senate, Val Imm of Man- 
kato has- introduced, his 'bill to re- 
apportion the -legislative districts in 
accordance [with the 1940 census, 
and he alsoprovldes for a reduction 
of the State Legislative's member- 
ship from the present 67 senators 
and 131 representatives to 44 sena- 
tors and 88 representatives. 

At the present time sixteen coun- 
ties have one senator each and 
several have more than one. In the 
House, only a few counties do not 
have at least one representative. 
Until acted 1 upon by the Commit- 
tee we will not know the final form 
of the bill. However, any bill to re- 
duce the number of members will 
have tough : sledding, as many would 
be voting themselves. out of a Job. 
While it is true that the present 
membership, especially of the 
House, is rather large and unwield- 

The first part of . the annual 
spelling contest for ruralischools in

a sectional contest between a dozen 
groups of schools in. this county, 
a leader .being named by Mr. Dab-

The winner in each sectional

Second Big Theft Of 
Cigarettes Reported At 
Great Northern Depot 

The theft of another large con- 
signment of cigarettes was report- 
ed early Saturday by local police. 
Six cases of cigarettes, valued at 
$390, were stolen from a freight 
car on the tracks near the Great 
Northern depot late Friday night, 
the seal on the car having been 
broken. No trace of the culprits has 
as yet been found. 

This is the second theft of tobac- 
co shipments at the G. N. railway 
here, a shipment valued at nearly 
$600 being stolen in the same man- 
ner Dec. 14. The last theft totaled 
60,000 cigarettes. 

While the sheriff and police have 
attempted to trace clues lri every 
conceivable manner the search has 
been fruitless this far. 

Impressive ceremonies marked 
the inaugural exercises for the

environments, the crowd, being 
equally as large as on former sim-

noisemaking as the shadows of war

President Roosevelt dedicated his 
third term to the "protection and 
perpetuation of the integrity of 
democracy in the face of the great 
perils never before encountered. In

Trinity Church Members 
Hold Annual Meeting 

At the annual business meeting 
of the Trinity Lutheran church on 
Tuesday evening following the con- 
gregational supper to which ap- 
proximately seventy-five attended, 
officers were elected and reports on 
various church activities were sub- 
mitted. Fifty new members have 
baen received during the year oi 
1940, the secretary reported. 

The officers elected were: Rev. R. 
M. Fjelstad, president, with Theo. 
Quale serving as vice president. A. 
M. Senstad was reelected on the 
board of trustees with George Mos- 
tue and E. B. Benson the other 
two new members. John L. Wold 
and R. J. Lund were elected on the 
board of deacons. The music com- 
mittee will consist of 'R. J. Lund 
and Mrs. H. A. Loken. Ushers will 
be Robert Oden, James Skarstad, 
Malcolm (Magnuson, Jewell Stadum 
and Paul Senstad, with Lowell Nes- 
se as head usher. 

The establishment of a pipe or- 
gan fund, with Mrs. O. F. Melby, 
H. M. Hitterdal and Mrs. A^ L. 
Hamilton on the committee, .was 
authorized. A resolution was also 
adopted wjhich approvedt of the en- 
larged pfihsioh for pastors, which 
was endorsed toy th^Norwegiah

The issue of fusion Between the 
Farmer-Laborites and : Democrats 
was given due consideration at the 
monthly meeting of the. Thief Riv- 
er Falls (Farmer-Labor club Tues- 
day evening. Talks on the subject 
were given by H. O. Chommie and 
H. O. Berve. 

Mr. Chommie contended that the 
Farmer-Laborites should join the 
Democratic party to assure that 
the latter party would! always be 
liberal and that they also needed 
representation in a national party 
which they do not have at present. 
Because of their larger number, 
Mr. Chommie contended, the Far- 
mer-Laborites would gain exclusive 
control of the Democratic party. 

Mr. Berve believed that it was 
not advisable at this time to com- 
pletely associate . with i the Demo- 
crats, though it is desirable that 
a united effort be made to gain 
control of the state administration 
from the Republicans] Mr. Berve 
held that to tie up with the Na- 
tional Democratic party now is in- 
advisable because of the fact that 
a party that has been In offiice for 
the length of time the Democrats 
have been are sooner or later on 
the way out. 

Both speakers stated that it was 
desirable that the Farmer-Labor 
association, a thing apart from the 
party, syil toe maintained to direct 
the group for liberal direction. 

Several others present gave short 
talks at the -close of the meeting 
on the subject. Among these were 
Ward Long and Sam .Brandvold.

of this city at their annual meet- 
ing, held Friday evening, revealed 
a very substantial growth in all 

The treasurer's report showed 
that the finances were in good or- 
der. The pastor's salary was in- 
creased twenty-five per cent. The 
membership roll as reported by the 
pastor, showed an Increase of forty 
per cent. Rev. E. V. Peterson is the

A very favorable report was made 
at the meeting by a committee 
that had inspected the recently in- 
stalled forced-air heating system. 
This -was the second improvement 
at the* church In the. past year, the 
other being a prpject.of an outside

Complete arrangements for the 
1941 Ice Carnival Feb. 8 was made 
by a committee of four from the 
Junior Chamber of Commerce 
which made a trip to Winnipeg on 
Saturday. The members of the 
committee are: Don Ma ttson, 'Lin- 
coln Arnold, Dr. Anderson and Les- 
ter Ihle. 

A group of thirty-five first class 
skaters of the Winnipeg Winter 
club will constitute the troupe that 
will perform here at the event. 
Some of these are the principal 
ones in the ice carnival of two 
years age and an equal number of 
new skaters who have proved their 
ability on the steel blades. Some 
of these performers are now mak- 
ing a tour of some of the larger 
cities in the United States', at pre- 
sent performing at a Minneapolis 
rink. Vera Willis and Archie Dun- 
can, the seasoned star performers 
here on former occasions, will again 
appear here. Another feature will 
be performances by a professional 
gril ,who. together with /her sister, 
wfll * 'have ail unusually difficulty 
and excellently, performed act. 

White Way Inn Fire 
Causes Slight Damages 

The local Fire Department was 
called Friday to the White Way Inn 
to extinguish a fire which had 
started Ih J the basement due to a 
defective chimney. Slight damages 
were reported. They were also call- 
ed Wednesday evening to the Ed 
Jaranson home at 317 Atlantic Ave. 
N., to put out at chimney fire. No 
damages were reported. 

.Five delegates will represent 
Pennington county ' at the annual 
state conVention of the Farmer- 
Labor party which will be held in 
St. Paul Thursday and Friday of 
next week. The local delegates who 
will attend are O. F. Halldin, Mrs. 
Laura Naplin, Gordon Olson. Ejnar 
Jensen and Palmer Wold. 

For unavoidable reasons, it was 
necessary to start the convention 
one day earlier than usual. This 
will necessitate advancing the en- 
tire proceedings one day. Conse- 
quently committees will assemble 
at the Association headquarters in 
the Labor Temple Jan. 29. to pre- 
pare subjects and questions for 
convention action without any de- 

Reports from counties through- 
out the state indicate a good at- 
tendance. The legislative session, 
and the St. Paul Winter Carnival 
offer special attractions to dele- 
gates and visitors. This is also the- 
quiet season in the country and. 
farmer delegates can get away from, 
their duties. 

The state committee at its last 
meeting outlined a new departure 
for the convention. Special sessions, 
were set aside for the farmer, the 
business and professional, and the ■ 
labor delegates so each element , 
could discuss its - own problems 
without confusion of numbers and 
of understanding. At these special 
sessions only subjects of direct and 
special concern to the particular 
group will be entertained. 

Special committees have been se- 
lected by the state chairman and 
these are presumed to have ques- 
tions formulated and prepared for 
consideration. These special com.- 
mlttees will meet Wednesday. Jan* 
29, at the Association headquarters 
in the Labor Temple. 

The convention will open at 10 
a. m. with State Chairman of the- 
Association, Edward Hagen, in. 
charge. • 

Mayor John J. McDonough will 
extend the address of welcome.

Entered as Second Class matter April 27th, 1932, at 
the post office at Thief River Falls, Minnesota, 
and re-entered under new title' at same office on 
February 21, 1935. under Act of Congress of March 
2, 1897. 


Last Monday, .the broadcasting systems of the 
nation carried the ceremonies of the inaugural of 
President Franklin D. Roosevel for a third term. It 
was a tradition-breaking event in that the precedent- 
of no third term was discarded; FDR becomes the 
-first president ever to serve for 'more than eight 

We who believe that adherence to tradition is 
a hindrance to progress feel somewhat elated over 
the ceremonies. At the same time we entertain hope 
that the third term of Roosevelt will carry on hi 
promoting social progress. Some of the progressive 
legislation of the earlier Roosevelt program is as 
yet incomplete. More must be done to improve what 
■was enacted. 

However, the shadow of war lurks over the pic- 
ture at this time. While Roosevelt has dedicated his 
third term to the preservation of democracy, let 
it not envolve us in direct warfare, nor force us 
to desist from improving our own economic affairs. 

It is satisfying to note that a large number of 
those who opposed the president's election to a third 
term have forgotten their argument and joined in 
the general following. That bodes well for a dem- 
ocracy and should stand us •well in perilous days 
os these. 


Something that is being overlooked by merch- 
ants here and in other Northwestern Minnesota 
towns is the Food Stamp plan which is doing much 
good in over 200 cities in trie country. The plan was 
discussed at a meeting of a number of merchants 
early last fall but since nothing has been done about 
bringing it into operation in this part of the state. 

The Food Stamp plan is ah aid primarily to 
the needy or those on relief. Any WPA employee 
or relief client getting Five Dollars in aid will be 
given half of that amount in food stamps, amount- 
ing to the same thing as money, only it must be 
used in obtaining only certain commodities, in this 
manner a relief client or WPA worker getting $20 
in relief money will get £10 in stamps, increasing 
his aid therefore to $30. Of course, these stamps 
will go only to those who can make general use 
of the extra stamps. 

The fact, that makes this plan so desirable is 
that- these stamps can be used in obtaining those 
goods of which this country has a surplus, such as 
flour, cotton, oranges and grape fruit, butter, etc. 
It reduces the surplus and as this is reduced, the 
price to the prcducer is likewise raised. It was con- 
ceived by federal administrators of the AAA and 
has reduced the surplus prcblcm and at the same 
time improved the .living conditions of the needy. 

There are a great many here who could be 
aided and a corresponding better business would 
result ior the merchants handling these surplus 


Dope is that Wendell Willkle's primary purpose 
for his trip to England is to gather information at 
first hand as to whether Britain is turning liberal. 
The big boys have been much disturbed lately over 
reports that the capitalistic order is undergoing ser- 
ious alterations in that country. Willkie wants to 
see for himself. ' ! 

While the Administration has privately wished 
Willkie Godspeed in his trip and is appreciative of 
the support he has given to the "lease-lend" bill, it 
is reported that FDR and the New Dealers are keep- 
ing their fingers crossed until I he returns. He will 
be in an excellent position to [reverse himself and 
do a lot of damage, should he ichange his mind on 
aid to Britain, although that contingency is regarded 
as rather remote. 

do any loafing, not even on a loafing job. Further- 
more, there is much work for him to do these days. 
He will have plenty of opportunity to show his 
stature— and many are keeping their eyes on him. 


A newsreport of the state convention of the 
probate judges held in St. Paul last week relates 
that the state is in need of another school for 
subnormal or feebleminded children. The reporr> 
asserts that there are too many such cases around" 
the state but they cannot be properly taken care 
of because the present institutions are overfilled. 

It has been known for some time that a school 
of this kind has been needed. A renewed effort to 
have this proposed institution located here must 
again be put into motion as the legislature is now 
in session. 


Within the next month or two a hundred or 
more farm homes reached by the Forum will be 
lighted for the first time by the REA (Rural Elec- 
trification administration). It is a remarkable step 
forward in Rural America. On this occasion we 
cannot fail to remember Senator Geo. w. Norris, 
the father of the REA. In an introductory state- 
ment to the recently published book, "Rural America 
Lights Up," Sen. Norris states: 

"My interest in rural electrification began nearly 
twenty years ago during the struggle over who should 
control Moscle Shoals. I reached the conclusion that 
one of the greatest blessings that could come from 
the harnessing of that priceless water power would 
be the bringing of low-cost electricity to all the 
farmers of the Tennessee Valley, not only for their 
own good, but as an example to the nation. Such 
an Idea was then considered by leading authorities 
to be a chimerical, dream. That is one reason why 
I visited Ontario' to find out what public power 
would do for farmers as well as city dwellers. There 
went to many farm homes and found them as 
■well lighted and electrically equipped as any city 
residence. Men, women, and children alike were 
pleased and delighted that such a source of happi- 
ness and economic advantage had come to them at 
last. I found Ontario country people paying less for 
electricity than were the inhabitants of our large 
cities In the United States. That demonstrated to 
me that real rural electrification — 'area service,* as 
we now call it — was not a futile hope but a proven 

"When the Tennessee Valley Authority Act o' 
1933 was passed, the dream of all of us mho ha'.! 
faith in this cause began to come true. President 
Boosevelt's order of 1935 and the Rural Electrifica- 
tion Act of 1936 brought the opportunity of rural 
electrification to every State in the Union. I am 
proud of REA .It has done great things and will 
do greater. It is a success. We have had to fight 
hard in the past, and there is hard fighting ahead, 
because selfish and powerful interests are opposed 
to the eceriomic and social benefits whioh cheap 
electric energy is bringing to our farm homes. Bui 
nothing can prevent the ultimate success of REA." 

Trespassing On Capitol Hill 

(By Special Correspondent) 
The President's "lease-loan" bill, 
designed to give all-out material 
aid to Britain and other nations 
resisting -aggression, will pass Con- 
gress with little or no modification 
after a most vicious fight, most ob- 
servers predict. 

Is It Nazi Propaganda 

In his address before the Chicago. 
Association of Commerce last week, 
James S .Kemper, president of the 
Chamber of Commerce of the Unit- 
ed States, made it plain that many 
of the big industrialists in this 
country fear "some form of a close- 
ly regulated socialist economy" to 
emerge in Britain if England is 
successful in defeating Hitler. Hence 
he advises that we go slow in the 
extent of laid that we give Britain. 

It will be recalled that during the 
period Hitler was rising to power 
in Germany, he got a large part of 
his aid from big bankers and in- 
dustrialists, not only of that coun- 
try, but of England, France, and 
even the United States. He did this 
by telling them that they had the 
choice of either supporting Nazism 
or being engulfed by Communism. 
He insisted that there was no other 
alternative open to them. So they 
supplied him with funds and played 
his game. 1 

Is the same kind of Hitler pro- 
paganda at work in this country 
now, to convince the American in- 
dustrialists that the defeat of the 
Nazis will merely bring on some- 
thing which they fear far more 
than Nazism or Fasism — socialism? 
It would 1 seem so. It all has a 

mighty familiar ring. Hitler has 
shown that he knows how to make 
men of big business affairs his 

Looks Like Final Spasms 

Last week we predicted that Mr. 
Verne Marshall and his No Foreign 
Wars ■Committee would not get very 
far. Marshall has since driven the 
nails into his coffin even faster 
than we had expected. 

If it is true, as has been charged, 
that wealthy friends of the Nazis 
promoting this committee, took in 
Marshall, a small-town Iowa editor, 
as window dressing, they made a 
serious error of judgment. As Dale 
Kramer, in this week's New Re- 
public, says, "Marshall has his head 
down and is swinging blindly — 
landing on his friends as well as 
his foes. 

Marshall entered the scene with 
advance notices of being a success- 
ful battler. The "fights" he boasts 
of having engaged in .back in Iowa 
now appear to have been against 
people not well able to defend 
themselves. And they can hardly 
be said to have been made in the 
public interest. One of the most 
vicious campaigns he engaged in 
was against use in the local schools 
of the textbooks of Professor Har- 
old Rugg of Columbia University, 
the objections to the textbooks be- 
ing that they contained some mild 
references to evil housing condi- 
tions and other social ills that the 
powers- that-be didn't want the 
school children to learn about.

took part in the farm protests dur- 
ing the latter part of Herbert Hoo- 
ver's administration. Most of his 
"fights" and "crusades" have been 
of that kind. 

Listeners on the Town Hall of 
the Air last week were treated^ to 
the spectacle of a man knocking 
himself out — a very rare prize ring 
occurence. Under questioning of the 
audience, Marshall completely lost 
his head, and threw childish chal- 
lenges to fight "anybody who wants 
to come up here." He would do 
well to ponder over that ancient 
Greek proverb which says, "Whom 
the gods would destroy they first 
make mad." 


One suggestion for added AAA payment that 
has a lot of merit to it was that where the govern- 
ment would give a special reimbursement to those 
farmers who cultivate their lands exclusively b> 

To us that appears to have- a lot of merit. The 
use of tractors enabled the farmers to cultivate 
more land and also cut out the raising of oats and 
other feed crops which had to be raised for the 
keeping of horses. I 

To some this may appear as taking a step back- 
ward as modern equipment would be dispensed with. 
But in view of the fact that we have a surplus of 
crops and face a possibility of shortage of gasoline 
why would it not be a- good way of cutting our 
surplus wheat and raise more oats so we can feed 
the horses instead of the petroleum dealers? 

O'.t'. Dcbbin is out-of-date for some of our far- 
mers b-!t he ate a lot of oats and hay, a thing 
that wasn't hard on our supply of gasoline. 


That Henry A. Wallace Is going to be more than 
an ordinary Vice President is seen by the fact that 
he has been booked soon to ma>te a good-will tour

author of the Good Neighbor policy, it Is fairly 
certain that he had quite a bit to do with rt.^ He

Dr. Richard Beck, professor' at the University 
of North Dakota, has written the editor of the Sat- 
urday Evening Post taking sharp issue with a recent 
article in the Post concerning the attitude of the 
residents of Norway tcward the Nazi regime. 

Dr. Beck challenges the statement by the author 
of the article, Demaree Bess, that "the Norwegian 
people submitted peacefully to the dethronement cf 
their king," contending there was vigorous opposi- 
tion to the action. 

"We are given only one side of the picture, 
while the other is subtly concealed," Prof. Beck 
wrote. "I resent the article: it presents the over- 
whelming majority of the great Norwegian people 
in a false light." He continues in part: 

"You refer to the article as 'an uncensored rec- 
ord' at the same time calling attention to the fact 
that It had to be 'scrutinized' by German military 
authorities. That explanation was hardly necessary, 
for obviously the article contains no facts detrimen- 
tal to the .German regime or program. ■ 

'The article is in reality nothing but a justifi- 
cation of Quisling and his small band of Nazi pup- 
pets, through interviews .with the leaders .of that 
group. i 

"Let us get down to the facts. We hear nothing 
about the tremendous and tragic destruction wrought 
by the invaders; nothing about the wholesale plun- 
der of Norwegian foodstuffs; nothing about the bill 
of 90 million dollars ', which the Nazis have presented 
to the Norwegian nation for 'protecting 'them; 
nothing about the large scale Imprisonment of 
prominent editors and other leaders of the Norweg- 
ian people or the suppression of various organiza- 
tions. Ample evidence of these things has come from 
Norwegian leaders now in this country and from 
letters smuggled out of Norway. 

"Demaree Bess says: The Norwegian people sub- 
mitted peacefully to the dethronement of their king.' 
To be sure, the Norwegian people did not rise in 
open revolt, for it would have been foolish under 
the circumstances, although some very brave public 
addresses were made 'by leading Norwegians on the 
constitutionality of the king. 

"The truth of the matter is that the rank and 
file of the [Norwegian people vigorously opposed the 
move to dethrone the king; always popular with 
them he has increasingly become to them a living 
symbol of a free and independent Norway. 

"Speaking of Quisling's political following, the 
author comments that in the last general elections 
his party attracted less than 3 per cent of the popular 
vote. More recently his 'popularity' was at a still 
lower ebb, ; for in the municipal elections of 1937, 
the Quisling percentage was 0.15 in the country 
districts arid 0.06 in the towns. Rather an eloquent 
expression I of the *respect' in which Quisling was 
held by the Norwegian, voters. There Is little reason 
to believe that his activities of the last few months 
have made, him more popular. 

"Where Demaree Bess makes a grave mistake 
and does grave injustice to the Norwegian people 
is In saying or implying that they are. In any grea€ 
number, indifferently submitting to a political trans- 
formation that would reduce them to slavery. Such 
an Implication, and the closing lines of the article 
particularly leave that Impression, not only belles 
the facts, but belles the independent spirit of the 
Norwegian ; people, which centuries of foreign rule 
could not weaken and which Is still a brightly burn- 
ing flame." — Grand Forks Herald 

Never in the state's history has 
an inaugural address been delivered 
by a governor which has been so 
filled with self-praise and with dis- 
regard for facts, as the one de- 
livered by Gov. Stassen at the op- 
ening of [the legislative session. It 
appears that the governor proceed- 
ed on the assumption that the citi- 
zens- of the state, even including 
members \ of the legislature, are so 
ill-informed that they cannot pos- 
sibly discern or analyze the empti- 
ness and the contradictions In his 

The people of the state do know 
that the Governor's claims regard- 
ing the great achievements in the 
welfare field are nothing but hol- 
low boasts. The drastic curtailments 
made in the appropriations for re- 
lief and welfare two years ago ac- 
complished no economies, for it 
shifted the responsibility to the lo- 
cal "communities to finance tills 
burden. This fact has been amply 
pointed out from time to time both 
in the news and editorial columns 
of the Twin City press. 

Why did not the Governor admit 
that these drastic reductions could 
not have been carried thru without 
suffering: and privation on the pari, 
of the poor of the state if it had 
not been for the Federal govern- 
ment stepping in with the surplus 
commodities and stamp plan which 
have carried approximately 20 per 
cent of the relief cost in the state? 
Why did not the Governor give 
credit where credit is due? During j 
the calendar year 1939 Minnesota '■ 
received from the .Federal Surplus 
Commodities Corporation products 
in retail value of $3,003,804.28 for 
general relief purposes, and receiv- 
ed thousands of pounds of butter, 
apples, oranges, etc., for the state 
institutions. The figures for 1940 
will shortly be available and they 
will reveal a similar picture. 
Ignorant of . Law and Facts 
It appears that the Governor has 
r.ot found time to become familiar 
with the details of the public as- 
sistance program in Minnesota, 
which was revealed in his recom- 
mendation that the state should 
assume one-third of the cost of the 
grants in aid to dependent child- 
ren. The fact is that the state Uv«) 
does now provide in the program 
for aid to dependent children that 
the counties will be reimbursed two 
thirds by the state and federal gov- 
ernments, which the Governor 
should '■ know meant one-third on 
the part of the state, inasmuch as 
the federal social security act pro- 
vides for one-third payment on the 
part of the federal government. 

Why did not' the Governor tell 
the Legislature and the people of 
Minnesota the truth, if he knows 
the facts, which is that the United 
States congress amended the sccial 
security act, placing the federal 
contribution for aid to dependent 
children on the same basis as the 
federal contribution in the old-age 
assistance program and aid to the 
blind program, namely; one half? 
This amendment took effect Jan. 
1, 1940i and meant a considerable 
saving to the .present state admin- 
istration, inasmuch as no benefit 
of this federal act was passed on 
by this administration to the coun- 
ties. We believe the legislature well 
understands this question and wil'. 
so amend the law that the contri- 
butions by the counties and the 
state will be placed on the same 
basis as the contributions for old- 
age assistance and aid to the blind, 
namely 1-6 by the county, 2-6 by 
the state and ;l-2 by the federal 
government. ' 

.Old-Age Assistance Deficit Straining 
The Governor again made refer- 
ence to deficits of two years ago 
but he' failed to tell that he .will 
have the largest deficits In the old- 
age assistance program that the 
Legislature has had to meet since 
that law was placed in operation. 
In the first year of the bienntum 
the deficit for old-age assistance In 
state funds .was $208,000, which was 
met by the extraordinary procedure 

of appealing to the state executive 
council and they covered this de- 
ficit by the sale of bonds. For the 
second year of the biennium", the 
Governor knows that there will be 
a deficit of $1,200,000. Is this the 
condition that the Governor refer- 
red to' as placing the old-age as- 
sistance program on a sound basis? 

Lien Law Repelled Timid 
. In regard to the effects of the 
Lien Law, the Governor has not the 
slightest Idea as to the soundness 
of the .program by virtue of the 
fact that no person in this state 
knows what particular group of re- 
cipients were influenced to refrain 
from receiving old age assistance 
because of the Lien ijaw provisions. 
If a survey was made of the cases 
who withdrew, it may well be found 
that a large proportion were the 
most needy who for lack of under- 
standing of the law regarding the 
lien or for sentimental reasons in 
regard to the little home that they 
struggled hard to acquire were the 
one$ who withdrew. 

(Dis) -Re-organization? ? ? 

The Governor's statement regard- 
ing the effects of the reorganiza- 
tion act comes with rather poor 
taste when he himself must be 
conscious of the fact that many 
of its provisions have had a very 
destructive effect upon the insti- 
tution program in the State. 

Why did not the Governor in- 
form the Legislature that he rec- 
ognized this, as is proven bv the 
fact that he engaged the American 
Public Welfare Association to carry 
out an extensive survey of the in- 
stitution and welfare programs in 
the state during the past summerv 
Why did not the Governor reveal 
the findings of this survey, which 
were in effect that a chaotic con- 
dition prevails and it is necessary 
for Minnesota to place back in one 
department child welfare, public 
assistance and the management oi 
the state institutions? 

In other words, the resstablish- 
ment again of one department as it 
existed prior to the reorganization 
act in 1939. . The Governor could 
also have informed the Legislature 
what the cost was of this survey, 
and made a " copy of the report 
available to all the members of 
the House and Senate.

Committee On Unemployment 

Rep Voorhis, California, has in- 
troduced a resolution in the House 
to create a standing committee on 
unemployment. This is a step in 
the direction of approaching the 
unemployment problem in a real- 
istic way. There are standing com- 
mittees in the House on most every- 
thing on earth except this most Im- 
portant problem. 

Said Voorhis: "We shall inevit- 
ably face a most difficult adjust- 
ment to peacetime employment at 
some date in the future, and the 
great defense expenditures will pro- 
bably not offer even temporarily a 
solution of the unemployment prob- 
lem. It is time that we studied this 
problem seriously instead of merely 
playing with it and indulging in 
wishful thinking." 

Sure Enough, Girdler 

Do you know that Tom Girdler 
is a director in Aviation and Trans- 
portation Corporation, which owns 
100 per cent of -the stock of Avia- 
tion Corporation, -which owns 65 
per cent of the stock of Vultee Air- 
craft Corporation? It was at the 
Vultee plant in California where 
the first strike in. the airplane in- 
dustry occurred since the defense 
program was initiated. Where there 
are Girdler labor policies in effect 
there .will invariably be labor diffi- 
culties, since the American worker 
will never consent to accept the so- 
cial and economic status of a Chi- 
nese coolie. 

Hits Pork-Barrel Legislation 

Recommendation of President 
Roosevelt in his budget message to 
Congress that appropriations for 
rivers and harbors and flood-con- 
trol works be reduced wasn't sweet 

music to the ears on many members 
of Congress. Although many of 
these projects are worth while, a 
large share is 'what is known as 
pork-barrel legislation. They like 
pork, and don't relish the idea of 
going on a fcod ration that leaves 
out this item of diet. 

Current Capital Chatter 

The Nazis say that American help 
will arrive too late to save Britain. 
But there is not a little evidence 
that were it not for American helo, 
the Nazi flag would today be flying 
over London, when the United 
States entered the World War in 
1917, there were 97 German merch- 
ant ships enterned in American 
ports, which were seized. There 
are now only two German merch- 
ant ships in American ports. Would 
that indicate that the Nazis knew 
several weeks in advance that the 
war was coming? Ninety per cent 
of the labor difficulties handled by 
the United States Conciliation Ser- 
vice of the Department of Labor, it 
is claimed, were settled satisfactor- 
ily to both labor and. management. 
There were 3,541 cases handled dur- 
ing the past fiscal year. Announce- 
ment by Acting Commissioner of 
Works Projects Hunter says that 
40D.OOO persons on WPA are now- 
engaged in defense projects. Pre- 
dictions here are that the Italians 
will prove mighty good fighters 
when they turn on a certain guy 
by the name of Benito Mussolini. 

Rep. Coffee, Washington, leader 
of the liberal block in the House 
stated that he will call the bloc to- 
gether very soon to organize an op- 
position to any effort of reaction- 
aries to slip over anti-labor and 
anti-social legislation - under the 
guise of national defense. " Rep. 
Khutson, Minnesota Republican, is 
worrying because construction fore- 
men in the large munitions plants 
are receiving in wages several times 
as much as relief workers do. He 
is not worrying about how many 
times as much congressmen re- 
ceive. There are some members of 
Congress who will vote for the re- 
quested defense appropriations, 
against tax increases, and against 
any increase in the statutory debt 
limit. They believe that they can 
eat their pje and have it too. Sen. 
Wagner, New York, author of the 
National Labor Relations Act, 
wants a Post-Emergency Economic 
Advisory Commission created now 
to study problems that we know 
will follow in the wake of the war. 


The recently published book, reviewed below, can be purchased from 
The Nation 55, Fifth Avenue, N? w York City. 



For several years there has been 
need for a book that would give a 
vivid word picture of th§ amazing 
organization known as "The CCC." 
Now we have such a book, written 
in simple 'but compelling language 
by the man who knews the subject 
best: The Director of the Civilian 
Conservation Corps. James J. M:- 
Entee. The book is entitled "Now 
They Are Men" and is published by 
the National Home Library Foun- 
dation of Washington, D. C',. at 25 

It is both a fascinating story and 
a source book of information about 
the chain of 1,500 camps that do: 
every State jn the country. It is of 
equal interest . to the youth who 
thinks he may wish to beccme 'i 
CCC "enrollee", to the business man 
who may want to employ some 
youths who have had CCC exper- 
ience, to the student of public af- 
fairs and to' the general public. 

An important contribution of the 
CCC, particularly noteworthy at 
this time when the attention of the 
entire nation is concentrated on 
national defense, is the improve- 
ment in the health of the more 
than 2.000,000 men who have serv- 
ed In the Corps. An interesting 
chapter on "Health" describes the 
hardening, the muscular develop- 
ment and the improvement in con. 
dltion of a CCC enrollee during hi; 
stay in camp. Mr. McEntee says: 

"One quarter of all the boys who 
are enrolled in the CCC are below 
the minimum acceptable weights 
for the Army. Nearly three quarters 
of all CCC boys are, at the time 

they are accepted, below the Army 
'Standard weights,* that * is, the 
weights which the Army regards as 
desirable. In a large number of the 
cases this situation is due to pro- 
longed undernourishment. After 
these ypuths have spent a year in 
a CCC' camp, it is an entirely dif- 
ferent story. When they leave the 
Corps to go home, cniy four per 
cent of them — only one boy in 25 — 
is below the minimum acceptable 
weights of the Army Surgeon Gen- 
eral, who lcoks after the health of 
CCC boys." 

The book also contains a resume 
of the first cays of the CCC. the 
reason for its organization, de'.ails 
of the Corps administration, life 
hi camp, education and training of 
enrollees. and interesting chapters 
on results of the CCC program, and 
its future usefulness. 

In the introduction, which clear- 
ly demonstrates the importance of 
■The CCC i:i the Uniied States. 
Mr. Paul V. McNutt, Federal Se- 
curity Administrator, says, in part: 
"Society lias developed a number 
of permanent institutions which 
help to build up its resistanca 
against the inroads of war and de- . 
pression, such as the- school, the 
church, the welfare organizations, 
and others. There is now a new 
institution, only seven years old, 
which in this brief period of time 
nas earned the .right to be adde--i 
:o this family of permanent Amer- 
ican institutions which build up the 
strength and vigor of society. It is 
the Civilian Conservation Corps." 

Into these pages is packed" the 
story of one of the most significant 
developments in American life in. 
recent years. 

The Inaugural 




In The 


By s. L. Tungseth 

I have appreciated the many re- 
quests ^rhich Irave come to me lor 
continuing this column during the 
lime of the legislative session. I 
trust that the contents ■will prove 
educational and of such import as 
in a E'peciai Tray refers to our sec- 
tion of the state. I also wish to 
express my appreciation to the edi- 
tors and newspapers who w illing ly 
accept "his column. The purpose o'i 
this cd* urn n is not to replace or in 
any way ' compete with regular 
commentators" columns, but- rather 
to give a few inside highlights of 
such items as are of special inter- 
est to our section of the state. 

"We are new ccme to the end of 
the second week. The usual orsan- 
izing proceeded promptly, as there 
is no minority grcup in the Senatt 
with sutficien: strength to blcck 
the plans made by the majority 
sreup. There has zttsr. very little 
shifting in the committee member- 
ships. I retained membership on 
the i.z'r.'. committees on which I 
have held membership since my 
election to the Senate. These com- 
mittees are Rural Credits and State 
Develcpmen: ; Dairy Products and 
Lrve Stock: Municipal Affairs: Pub- 
lic Highways: Public Welfare: 
"Lioucr Control: University: Educa- 
tion. Senator Neumeier was- elected 
to the chairmanship of ' the im- 
■ocrtant Tax Committee, succeed- 
ing the late Senator Miller of Lit- 
tle Falls. Since Sen. Xeumeier is 
from rural Minnesota, the rural 
bloc in th? Senate looked upon this 
appointment with favor. The large 
cities, of course, wanted this chair- 
manship, and Sen. Muilin of Min- 
neapolis put in a strong bid for 

session will be a very busy one. 
perhaps not so much with entirely 
new legislative issues as with such 
issues as had been current prob- 

that any further "stream-lining" of 
the state government will be at- 
tempted at this time. There are. 
however, many items' of great in- 
terest to our people, ay way of 
farmer legislation, which will be re- 

One instance is that of the lien 
law. This law has proven to be de- 
■ cidedlv unpopular even as it is de- 
cidedly unfair. We are now'paying 
our largest allotments of old "age 
assistance to such people who have 
been careless and thriftless, accu- 
mulating nothing in their lifetime, 
and penalizing such people as have 
been thrifty and who have succeed- 
ed in buildins and maintai nin g a 
little home for themselves. The 
unpopularity of the present law is 
greatly evident bj the fact that 
some 'of the first bills that went 
into the hopper dealt with this 
^articular legislation. Speak in g of 
reorganization, we have introduced 
also "this year a bill which will re- 
duce the number of legislative dis- 

of legislative members. This bill, 
supported bv Sen. Val Imm. wculd 
reduce the number of districts in 
the state from 67 to 44. thus re- 
ducing the membership of the Sen- 
ate from 67 to 44 and the member- 
ship of the House from 131 to S3. 
There are several arguments in 

favor, of such rearrangement, and 
yet it is doubtful if the legislature 
will take much time for serious 
consideration of this matter. Its 
saving to the state wculd be very 
small and quite unnoticeable! Large 
cisirJLcis requiring heavy campaign 
expenditures will remove possibili- 
ties of election .except to such who 
are wealthy enough to make the 
investment. In re-districting the 
the state for legislative purposes, 
rural Minnesota must be on the 
watch lest it lose its balance of 

Stassen's Inaugural 
Speech Reviewed 

(Continued Fr om Paee Two) 

sanctimonious tone to plead for 
care for "unfortunate and little 
children" when he well knows that 
his administration has been respon- 
sible for the firing of all the parole 
agents in the institutions like the 
State Training School for Boys at 
I Red Wing, and the Heme School 
for Girls at Sauk Center, with the 
?esult that, young boys and girls, 
or as the Governor prefers to put 
it in his inaugural speech "little 
children of tender age" have bee?. 
discharged from the institution into 
the world without any supervision ' 
cr .adequate placement service. 

This situation has become so ag- 
grevated that cognizance has been 
taken cf this fact by juvenile courts 
and the daily press of the Twin 
Cities when it was learned that 
boys- paroled from the State Train- 
ing Schocl with no home and no 
place to go had shortly become 
guilty of new offenses. What sort 
of human economy has the Gover- 
nor praised when mere, boys "are 
permitted to become hardened 
criminals because the state wants 
to save a few dollars on parole and 
probation officers' salaries? 
Inexperienced— Incompetent: 

When the Governor in his inau-- 
gural address declared that he has 
handled" the welfare program in the 
state without politics, he made tha# 
statement trying to forget the past 
and hoping that the people of Min- 
nesota will do likewise, but it will 
be hard for the citizens of the state 
to forget that; he is responsible for 
the inauguration of the greatest- 
orgy of the spoils system that has 
ever been witnessed in any state. 

He' showed absolutely no regard 
for the provisions of the law enact- 
ed by the last session of the legis- 
lature which provides that the ap- 
pointments in the welfare and in- 
stitution divisions shall be persons 
with training and experience in the 
respective field. 

Contrary to that provision, purely 
political appointments were made 
in the institution division, for an 
example the assistant director. Dr. 
G. O. Orr. a superannuated dentist 
was retired from his profession to 
the state payroll, his institution ex- 
perience consisted of having served 
as chairman of the Stassen for 
Governor All Party Committee- An- 
other person, |. Mrs. Hazel Daniels, 
who was appointed secretary of the 
5ocial Security Beard, whose exper- 
ience consisted of being State Chair- 
p woman of the Women' Republican 
I Committee. 

1 The Governor cannot have for- 
! gotten the wholesale dismissal of 
; employees throughout the state de- 
■ partments, many of whom had 
1 served the state loyally fcr 10, 15. 
; or more — or long before there was 

a Fanner-Labor administration. If 
he has forgotten he should refresh 
his memory by reviewing some of 
the statements made by the daily 
press of the Twin Cities during the 
late summer of 1939. For example, 
Joe Ball, now Senator Ball, who 
was the political -writer for the St. 
Paul Pioneer Press and Dispatch, 
and the greatest apologist for the 
Stassen administration, stated in 
his column in the Pioneer Press of 
August 1. 1939, "in the opinion of 
this column, the purge went too 
far. In fact, this writer .considers 
it the most serious smear on the 
Stassen administration to dat*, and 
the only one so far that is at all 
likely to stick." 

A Monumental HrprocHt 
In spite of this sordid political 
history, the governor has now the 
audacity to declare in his inaugural 
address to the state legislature that 
his administration of the state de- 
partments has been without poli-

! Jan. 20, 1941 

| Editor Tri-County Porumt 
1 Gov. Stassen and his friends are 
i having a time of it. The Governor 
: in his budget recommended that- 
one mill be levied on all taxable 
property in the state, and this 
would go toward payment of inter- 
est and principal of Minnesota's 
Rural Credit bonds. This would 
take a number of years, but now 
State Treasurer Schmahl says the 
governor is all wet and doesn't 
know what he is talking about, as 
it would take close to two mills to 
pay the interest of Minnesota's 
S60.OOO.O00 : Rural Credit bonds. 
George C. Jones, conservator of the 
Rural Credit, stated that on Dec. 
31, 1940, Ithe combined losses in 
liquidating the state's Rural Credit 
Dept. would be $28,561 and that 
the. Rural ;Credit fund's indebtment 
was reduced to $45,465,003. ■ 

JTow there is close to. Sla-OOO-OO") 
difference j between Mr. Schmahl 
and Mr. Uones' figures and both 
can't be 'right; further Schmahl 
claims that the governor's plan will 
not yield one half of the interest 
of the Rural Credit bonds. Well, 
it looks as if someone was off his 
base, and I opine we will hear more 
of this- 

While our Republican friends un- 
scramble this problem I would, like 
to write on my pet topic, trees, 
flowers, shrubs, gardens and im- 
proved pastures and hay meadows. 
It is a well known fact that our 
native grasses give us poor and 
short pasture period, as all we can 
figure on is about five month pas- 
ture per year, by breaking up our 
pastures and waste land and seed 
it to grasses and clovers, we can 
have better hay and pasture. Al- 
falfa and Bromo grass make a very 
good pasture and hay combination 
and it is proven that the brcmo 
part will' do away with the danger 
from bloating that so often result 
from alfalfa alone for pasture, and 
brcme grass, crested wheat grass, 
western wheat grass, meadow fes- 
cue, and for low wet ground Reeds 
c ana ry grass. I can well remember 
some years ago while checking soil 
conservation in New Solum town- 
ship, when I came to an old friend. 
Frank Hodik, and he told me he 
had bought 40 acres of real waste 

land, low and wet and covered with 
some scrubby bushes and weeds. 
He had broken up part of the land 
that summer and worked it- up in 
fine shape and seeded j a mixture 
of grasses. He remembered alfalfa, 
reed canary grass and some other 
grasses he did not remember the 
name of. I had to go with him and 
look over the planting. The alfalfa 
showed up fine but the i rest of the 
grasses looked tiny and thin. A 
year or so later I met Mr. Hodik 
and asked >Hm about his planting 
venture. He told me that his seed- 
ing was doing fine and he was sure 
he was going to get a good return 
from his waste la n d. 

Now we have in central and east- 
ern Marshall county (and what I 
say about Marshall county holds 
good for Pennington and Red Lake 
too) many thousand acres of waste 
land, sandy, wet, brushy, that couid 
be broken and seeded to grass and 
the land could support mare than 
twice the number of cattle and 
sheep that we now have and would 
mean a better income for the most 
of us. Some of our poor- land needs 
an application of phosphate, and 
that is costly, '■ but Mr. Reierson 
said the other day that an agent, 
. who sells Anaconda Super Treble 
Phosphate told him that last year 
, they sold the 45 per cent phosphate 
i at $54 per ton and they returned 
to the purchaser $4.00 per ton so 
ihe final cost was $50 per ton. This 
; is high but I believe it will pay 
to apply it on low ground.

Why Should a Farmer 
Order His Tractor NOW? 

• REASON NO. 1^-Break 
in your new tractor early on 
light hauling and belt jobs 
— prepare now for most ef- 
ficient operation. 

• REASON NO. 2 — Buy 
early for a better deal on 
your old tractor. Buy while 
we are short on used trac- 
tors — while we. can offer 
you an attractive trade. 

• REASON NO. 3— If you 
plan to change from teams 
to a tractor this spring, save 
a good many dollars' worth 
of horse or mule feed by 
trading now. 

• REASON NO. 4— Be fore- 
handed — get your order on 
the books while tractor pric- 
es are still based on 1940 
labor and material costs. 

• REASON NO. 5 — You 
won't have to worry over 
late delivery when you buy 

early. Experience proves 
that late buyers frequently 
have to wait longer than 
they want to for their trac- 

• REASON NO. 6^-If your 
young son or daughter plans 
'to "man" your tractor for 
the first time this spring, 
choose your safe, comfort- 
able, easy-to-handle tractor 
now, so the new operator 
will have a good chance to 
become familiar jwith it 
ahead of the rush, i 

e REASON NO. 7^-Every 
Farrnall in our store is the 
product of careful; precise 
work. These modern power- 
partners were built under 
the most favorable manu- 
facturing conditions. You 
will have to go a long way 
to find a tractor as; good as 
the Farmall that is; waiting 
for you in our store.

Thief River Falls, Minn. 

Nearly 6,000 Motorists 
Lose Driver's Licenses 

Nearly 6,000 motorists forfeited 
their right to drive through driv- 
er's license revocations and suspen- 
sions enforced last year by the 
State Highway department in a 
record-breaking campaign to make 
Minnesota's highways sale for those 
who' use th em . 

Two thousand two hundred and 
sixty-six driver's licenses were re- 
voked outright and 3,690 were sus- 
pended during 1940 as a result of 
the coordinated effort of Highway 
ratrchnen, local police officers, and 
traffic courts to eliminate those 
traffic law violatio n s which acci- 
dent studies have shown to be the 
most common causes of deaths, in- 
juries and property destruction on 

Of the total of 5,95'j combined 
revocations and suspensions, seven 
revocations and 14 suspensions were 
for offenses committed in Penning- 
ton county. 

The 1940 revocations showed an 
ii'crease of 45 per cent over the 
1.553 recorded in 1939, the previous 
rr^crc year; Suspensions showed an 
e\en greater increase of more than 
16f per- cent ever the 1335 suspen- 
sions enforced in 1939. Major in- 
creases in driver's license forfeitures 
resulted both from increased ar- 
rests for driving while under the 
influence of intoxicants, an^i from 
the new policy inaugurated at the 
beginning of 1940 of suspending the 
driving pri allege of any person 
twice convicted, and revoking" the 

license of any person three times 
convicted, of speeding, careless or 
reckless driving within a 12-month 

Driving while intoxicated held 
top place as the cause of license 
forfeitures -with 1,664 outright one- 
year revocations and 455 suspen- 
sions, or a combined total of 2224 
as against 1,630 in 1939. 

Speeding wa^a close second in 
the list of penalties, however, with 
138 revocations for triple convic- 
tions during the year and 1,700 
motorists barred from the wheel 
for varying periods t>f time as a 
penalty for having committed two 
speeding violations within a 12- 
mont hperiod. The total of revoca- 
tions and suspensions enforced for 
speeding was 1338, as against 331 
during the previous year. 

New Ruling In Effect; 

On Pickerel Fishing 

Conservation Commissioner W. L 
S trunk this week ordered addition- 
al year round protection for pick- 
eral or Northern Pike in place of 
the ban on winter spearing, by 
reducing daily catch and possession 

Applying to angling, the daily 
catch limit, beginning 30 days from 
the date of the order's legal pub- 
lication, will be six with 12 per- 
mitted in possession. The former 
limit was eight pickerel daily with 
20 allowed in possession. 

Effective at once the Commis- 
sioners order reopened the winter 
spearing season on pickerel or Nor- 
thern pike, until March 1st. with 

a daily ta ke limit of two permit- 
ted. Possession limits will be the 
same as for angling. 

Asserti n g that surveys have re- 
peatedly demonstrated the need for 
according pickerel more protection, 
the Commissioner said the new 
regulation of limits will help con- 
serve this fish. -. 

"An inves t igation by the Director 
of the Division of Game and Pish. 
and the State Bureau of Fisheries 
showed that the pickerel will de- 
rive the needed protection from, the 
reduced limits," Strunk said. 

"The burden of protection wm 
thereby be imposed upon all fish- 
ermen instead of upon the' com- 
paratively limited number of "»ir>- 
ter spearmen."

Carole Lombard and Charles 
Laughton are starred in the strange 
romance film "They Knew What 
They Wanted,", taken from the Sid- 
ney Howard prize play and which 
will *e seen at the Avalon Theatre 
Sunday and Monday. 

The center of the story is laid 
in California's Napa Valley, center 
of the .state's grape-growing indus- 
try. Laughton, playing his first 
thoroughly sympathetic to\e in five 
years, portrays a happy-go-lucky 
Latin vinyardist, one who has made 
plenty of money and who decides 
it is time for him to get married. 
Miss Lombard plays a waitress 
in a San Francisco cafe, whom Mr. 
Laughton meets on a vacation. He 
instantly falls in love with her, hut, 
too shy to speak to her directly, 
returns to the ranch and gets his 
foreman, William Gargan, to send 
her a letter lor him, since he has 
never learned to write. 

The correspondence blossoms into 
the proposal and acceptance sta?e; 
Carole gives up her job and comes 
to Napa to marry Laughton, and 
after a slight mix-up at the sta- 
tion (for Laughton has sent her 
Gargan's photograph instead of; his 
own), reaches the ranch. Laughton, 
overjoyed, gives a foig fiesta to cel- 
ebrate "the wedding, .planned for;the 
following day., put in showing; off 
before the assembled guests he falls 
from a roof, breaking both legs. 

The marriage is necessarily post- 
poned, ,over Laughton's.. protests, 
and Cafole and. Gargan, who: are 
unaccountably! attracted to pne ; an- 
other, nave a brief romantic inter- 
lude. Carrfe, nurses Laughton thru 
his corivalte&ma'e, and he insists on; 
marrying her as soon as he lean, 
walk again. But when that time 
comes, - Cafolb. learns that she ;i3 
gravely compromised through ; her 
affair with ""the foreman. \ 

• The; .tense ^situations that result 
from 1 : thli discovery make for an 
absorbing drama as the inner: na- 
ture of each of the three principals 
comes to the surface.

cello, violin, accordion, and tfas^.

Blut", "Tales From • the Vienna 
Woods", "Wine, Women, and Song"

Teller", by Victor Herbert, "Ave 
Maria", by Shubert, and "Hungar- 
ian dances, by Brahms, as well as 
other classical and semi-classical 

The solo work of the members of 
the Ensemble is highly recommend- 
ed by audiences before whom they 
have played. Especially well liked 
has been the playing of Ador Bei- 
ger, violinist and conductor, who 
executes a classical arrangement of 
"Listen to the Mocking Bird". Oth- 
er members of the Gypsy Ensemble

South St. Paul, Minn., Jan. 21, 
1941: Light supplies failed to stim- 
ulate demand for slaughter steers, 
the trade continuing In a dull vein 
following last -week's closing sharp 
decline. Monday's market was bare- 
ly steady and toward the close frac- 
tional declines were enforced, while 
the Tuesday trade dragged along 
at steady rates. Medium grade 
steers have predominated and • a 
spread of $8.50-11.00 took the bulk. 
There were several loads of good 
lightweight Canadian steers at 
$11.60, while the top so far this 
week rested at $12.00 for good me- 
dlumweight steers, some good Mon- 
tana steers being forwarded because 
of lack of satisfactory action. Hei- 
fers were steady for the week while 
cows strengthened Monday only to 
slow down and sell barely steady- 
Tuesday. Several loads good heifers 
made $10.00. Bull prices were stea- 
dy to weak, and vealers sold gen- 
erally steadv, uoward to $13.00 be- 
ing "paid for strictly choice kinds. 
Stackers and feeders attracted sup- 
port at fully steady prices. Choice 
yearlings made $10.50, and good to 
choice feeders brought $10.00. 

After advancing 15-25c on the 
week's onening session, hog prices 
on Tuesdav drooped back to a level 
steady with last week's close. Tues- 
day's top was $8.00 paid freely on 
bulk of the good and choice 180- 
280 lb. barrows and gilts. Similar 
grades 270-300 lb. hegs moved at 
$7.90-3.00. while 300-3GO lb. kinds 
cleared at $7.65-7.90, and occasional 
heavierweights sold downward to 
$7.50. Good and choice 140-160 lb. 
weights ranged from $7.25-7.80. with 
160-180 lb. averages making $7.65- 
8.00. Good sows ranged from $7.00- 
8.15. and feeder pigs bulked al 

Receipts of western fed lambs 
expanded materially Monday. This 
factor, along with lower tones far 
dressed lamb products at . eastern 
centers Droved instrumental In 
checking the recent rapid advance 
of slaughter sheep and lamb prices. 
Determined to readjust, the live cost 
of lambs, local buyers sought fully 
25c lower levels, but encountered 
stiff resistance from salesmen. Some 
weakness was apparent, but as .a 
whole, the lamb trade responds with 
a largely steady outlet. This is also 
true of- • other slaughter classes_ 
Feeding and shearing lambs -were 
in broad demand, selling 25-50c 
higher. Fed lambs of strictly choice 

Knute Rockne Film To 
Show At Falls Theatre 

One of the most unusual screen 
stories in recent times will make 
Its local debut at the Falls Theatre 
Saturday Midnight when the new 
film, "Knute Eockne— All Ameri- 
can," opens for a 3^U'y showing. 
It is- a film life story of one of 
America's greatest sports heroes— 
Knute Rockne. The picture traces 
Rockne's life from his early child- 
hood in Norway to his tragic death 
in 1931. His life was full of excite- 
ment, despair, love and triumps. 
The film, with Pat O'Brien cast as 
the Notre Dame football wizard, 
faithfully portrays those elements 
and keeps alive the true "spirit of 
Rockne." His vigor, his astute phil- 
osophy, the great teams he built, 
the developing of the famous "Four 
Horsemen" axe all told with a skill- 
ful blending of power and subtlety 
in "Knute Rockne— All American." 
O'Brien is said to have given such 
a realistic portrayal of the real 
"Rock" that Knute's closest friends 
were amazed at the startling like- 
ness in even the smallest gesture. 
The supporting cast consists of 
Gale Page as Bonnie, Knute's wife; 
Donald Crisp as Father Callahan, 
President of Notre Dame, and Ron- 
ald Reagan that of the renowned 
George Glpp. The players that 
portray the roles of the "Four 
Horsemen" have all seen action on 
the gridiron. 

"Knute Rockne— All American" is 
more than just a great life .story, 
it is a guide to something we should 
never forget — the true spirit of Am-

"Twenty-one or twenty-three 
pages is what my department 
needs," remarked George Werst- 
lein. This gives you an idea what 
the noise was about that went on 
in room 212 at the Prowler staff 
meeting on Monday night. Thfc 
staff has been divided into various 
departments such as sports and 
features, each of which have been 
trying to figure out the number of 
pages needed for its department. 
This, in turn, -will determine the 
size of our 194l yearbook. 

The color and design of the cover 
for the Prowler hag been chosen 
and suggestions for different types 
of themes have been. made. 

Willis Wright, editor of the Prow- 
ler, urges all departments to b£oin 
to gather their material early so 
that, the finished yearbook will be 
a nroduct worth admiring. 

Did you know that the yearbook 
has not always been called the. 
"Prowler''? The graduating class of 
1917 called their annual "The Moc- 
casin." "The Blank Book" consti- 
tuted the yearbook for 1933. 

The 1935 Prowler contained about 
forjy pages. Last year's Prowler 
showed a remarkable increase; it 
contained ninety-six pages. Approx- 
imately the same number of pages 
■will be in this year's annual.

Glitter of Gadgets Often Distracts 

Builder From Quality Where 

It's Needed Most 

Are you building a house for the 
first time? Then chances are you 
are in kind of a daze. There are so 
many things to decide, so many 
things to buy, so many more things 
you want and can't buy because 
there is just so much money^ Now 
there's nothing less glamorous than 
the concrete footings and founda- 
tion. One doesn't show them off to 
one's friends, but if you skimp on 
either, you'll be busy for years to 
come trying 1 to cover up cracked 
walls that all your friends will see. 

Don't Skimp On Framework 
Likewise the timber skeleton or 
frame of your house is going to be 
all covered up, but if you skimp on 
it you'll have sagging floors that 
squeak at every step. 

And how about those great big 
holes in the wall, the rough win- 
dow openings. You can buy win- 

dows and window frames to fill 
these holes pretty cheap. And 
you'll pay for them for years to 
come in heat lost, dr'afty floors and 
wet walls. Or, you can buy care- 
fully designed, precision built and 
factory fitted windows and window 
frames complete with weatherstrip 
that will be a joy and a comfort 
every year that you live in your 
house. Yes, and you'll find that the 
extra cost was money well spent 
because of heat bilis, repair bills 
and redecorating bills saved. 

Can't Replace Windows 

Good windows are a permanent 
part of your walls. They protect 
your investment in insulation and 
quality construction. Any home 
without weather-tight windows .is 
only one-half insulated. So when 
you build, get down to fundamen- 
tals. Always remember — you can 
add the gadgets any time, but you 
can't replace footings or timbers or 
windows. They've got to be good 
right from the start. ,

Experiments are now being car- 
ried on among certain special 
groups with a -vaccine which Is 
known to prevent flu 'In laboratory 
monkeys, according to the doctors. 

This .vaccine is not ready for 
general use, however, and, In the 
meantime; members of the com- 
mittee caution this year's flu vic- 
tims, of whom there may be a 
good many before the end of the 
year, to go to bed immediately and 
stay there warm and comfortabls 
and preferably on a liquid diet till 
the acute stage is over. This cau- 
tion is stressed in" the third bul- 
letin issued by the committee this 
month In connection with their 
campaign of education on colds, 
"flu", and pneumonia. 

"Bed rest and good nursing care 
are the two main factors in treat- 
ment," the doctors say. **They can 
be supplemented by sedatives and 
■preparations which will relieve 
headache and body pains. But to 
ignore all symptoms and attempt 
to stay on your feet with the flu 
is to invite serious illness and also 
to help spread the disease to every- 
body you meet.

the number of members;, i will in- 
form you more. later concerning the 
arrangements pro and con. 
In his Inaugural message the 
Governor puzzled ' many people by 
calling for action by the Legisla- 
ture to "pioneer in an experimental 
way in an attempt to make real 
progress in Improving the homes 
of the Ill-housed citizens of our 
State." I say puzzled because the 
pioneering .work in this field has 
already been done by the Federal 
Government. The Republican con- 
trolled Senate In the 1937 session, 
and the Stassen controlled House 
and Senate of 1939 did nothing to 
avail Minnesota citizens of the slum 
clearance projects of the Federal 
Government, altho the Liberals 
continually fought for it. As a re- 
sult we are lagging far behind. We 
are one of the two states i^.*he 
Nation that have not adopted en- 
abling acts to permit this program 
to function in our Cities. U. S. 
Housing Authority representative, 
Leon H. Keyserling, was in the 
Cities the past week trying to find 
out why "this is so. ""Rent relief 
now paid in St. Paul alone," he 
said, "amounts to about $600,000 a 
year." TJ. S. H. A. Housing is not 
icmpetitivs with private building, 
as it is for the poorest people. I 
trust we can do something this 
session on this important question, 

of Indebtedness that have been /is- 
sued, for what .purpose, in what 
amounts, and on what date. When 
this information is received I shall 
report -it to you. There are rumors 
from sources that should be au- 
thorative that the savings of mil- 
lions claimed by Stassen for his 
administration will have evaporat-

Homestead Lien -Repeal 
On Tuesday, Jan. 14th, Represen- 
tatives Hayford, Geo. Hagen, Gor- 
don C Peterson and Charles Hal- 
stad introduced a bill which called 
for repeal of the Homestead Lien 
Law. We Liberals called for a sus- 
pension of the Rules so we ^ould 
take immediate action, insofar as 
the provisions of the Law are well 
known and have been widely dis- 
cussed. Furthermore, -the Governor 
in his address backhandedly prac- 
tically called for repeal, so we 
wanted to test the sincerity not 
only of his words but the actions 
of his supporters. Needless to say 
we lost by a vote of 68-42, with 21 
members not voting. The bill now 
is i^. the hands of the Public Wel- 
fare Committee, and we shall make 
every effort to get it passed when 
it reaches the floor again. *-a

Full membership in the National 
Association of Schools of Music has 
been granted the Concordia College 
Conservatory of Music of Moorhead 
and Fargo, according to word re- 
ceived from Burnett C. Tuthill, 
secretary of the association, by 
Paul J. Christiansen, Conservatory 

"The flattering report on the 
work of the Conservatory which we 
received from the examining offi- 
cer is a high tribute to the excel- 
lent teaching staff associated with 
me in the department and the gen- 
erous administrative support given 
by Dr. J. N. Brown, president of 
the college." Mr. Christiansen said. 

With this recognition, Concordia 
becomes the only conservatory with 
full membership between Minnea- 
polis and Seattle. It is the only 
music institution in North Dakota 
to achieve this distinction and it 
shares honors with the Minnesota 
College of Music, and McPhail 
School of Music In Minneapolis for 
the state of Minnesota. 

At present there are 242 special 
students. 50 who are high school 
graduates; 171 students who are 
music minors in the college depart- 
ment and 15 students who axe ap- 
plied music majors.

It is often difficult to differen- 
tiate between a cold and the "flu" 
according. to this bulletin, though 
fever and exhaustion, all out of 
proportion to other symptoms and 
to the length of the illness, is a 
common characteristic. In either 
case good care promptly given will 
save time, money and lives, and 
such care is important even when, 
as this year, the prevailing type 
seems to be mild. Even mild attacks 
of flu are likely to give rise to se- 
vere secondary infections and, fur- 
theimore, epidemics sometimes ga- 
ther virulence as they move along.

The State Budget 

At 11 a. m. last Thursday, Jan. 

16, the Governor delivered his Bud- 

;et address and recommendations 
to a joint session of the House and 
Senate. In the Minneapolis-Star 
Journal for that day we read a 
sub-headline preceding its report of 
this address which was very inter- 
esting, to say the least. It reads: 

It Balances, Says the Governor." 
We could detect a slight question- 
ing tone, as they perhaps thouEht 
of the bill we have already passed 
in which we had to appropriate 
$1,200,000 to cover a deficiency in 
the Old Age Assistance fund for 
the present fiscal year ending June 

1, 1941. 

Let me also partially quote an 
editorial from the St. Paul Dis- 
patch of December 14, last montb 

Speaking before the Hennepin 
County Bar Association^. Harry Fii- 
erman. Tax Consultant, said the 
state general revenue fund had a 
deficit of about $3,700,000 in July, 
1939, and that this. deficit now has 
grown until it is between 56,400, 
000 and $7,500,000. The figures de- 
finitely prove one thing that the 
State's accounting system which Is 
a fundamental part of the Reor- 
ganization Act, is not functioning, 
although it is now more than 18 
months since the law was passed. 
One of the purposes of the Reor- 
ganization Act was to end deficit 
financing but from the figures that 
are available It would seem that 
this objective has not been accom- 

I am sure you all are interested 
in a true picture of your state's 
finances, and as in the weeks ahead 
any further deficiences are uncov- 
ered I shall endeavor to keep you 
informed. Already Rep. Claude Al- 
len, chairman of the House Appro- 
priations Committee has given us 
an inkling of what lies ahead by 
his statement that, "We're $3,000,- 
000 in the red to start with.'; 

In the Senate a resolution has 
already been passed demanding 4.'
